Paint on top of door frame

From Tommy Mann

What do everyone think of painting the top of door frames?

I now paint the top of all of the door frames, not just the ones you see when you go up the stairs.

I used to only paint the top of the frames on the ones where you can see that edge when walking up and down the stairs. I never painted the one you never see I was never taught as an apprentice. I always thought, “There’s no need because you won’t see them anyway.” I don’t know any other decorators either.

But then, about five years ago, a customer called me and told me to go back and paint any door frames I had missed decorating his property. He had actually climbed a stepladder and checked each one! He was confused about why I’d only do the ones you can see from the stairs. I went back and did it all. “Customer is always right” and all of that.

And now I’ve learned from it and I always paint them all. whether you see them or not.
