Hi on advice from HKKDers i have used decorators caulk to fill in the gaps between the wood on an internal door. As well as a few bits this involved filling in all down the sides from top to bottom. I put the caulk in no problem although next time would probably make the nozzle a little thinner but when i came to then paint the door i found it difficult to keep a straight line.
I now have another door to do and am thinking of painting the door first as the wood is slightly away from the plastered wall so it would be easy and then filling in the caulk afterwards. Would this be a sensible thing to do or would it be messy. It just seems it would be easier to paint whilst i have the gap from the wall rather than once the gap is filled in. The caulk itself is white so wondered if my idea would work.
