Default Painting emulsion on wood ?

In my previous house had white gloss everywhere .... and that meant on new
wood ..
knotting primer 2 coats undercoat top gloss coat

In current place not used gloss anywhere, all skirtings, architraves & doors
are stained ash .... now come on one job where I don't want to stain.

Just finished putting finish on Loft access hatch ... opening all nicely
lined in Ply, hatch out of ply stiffened with 3 x 1 frame ...

Fixed the architrave around opening today .. and have just given it all a
coat of white primer.

The intent was to put a coat of one of the one-coat white paints, but SWMBO
just asked a valid Q ... "can't we just use same pain we put on the
ceiling?"

Never used semi matt emulsion on wood ... is there any reason why it could
not be used ?

Contact staining. If you are happy with its durability (it will peel
with hard rubbing), then you are happy with it. It tends not to wear
so well around a living-room door's handle, but this can be countered
with a scratch plate. Unless your loft hatch forms part of a
thoroughfare go with the emulsion.

No loads of people do use it. It will give a soft and very matt
surface that will collect dirt with any physical contact and have no
durability worth mentioning, but that may be fine in some places.

When it's dry, perhaps rub some clear furniture wax on to help with
the dirt-magnetism. I've seen it used a few times, apparently the wax
fills up the pores in the paint, giving fewer places for dirt to stick.

I had kitchen and bathroom ceilings of T&G wood which had been stained
and varnished (polyurethane). They had gone quite dark with age but I
gave them a coat of old emulsion (thinned) and then two coats of
bathroom type emulsion (a light colour). This was done about four years
ago and they're showing no adverse signs so far.

You were very lucky to get emulsion to work on top of varnish
Also Emulsion is normally not recommended for kitchen or bathroom due to
steam ... they produce a specific paint for these rooms. ...
