First remove dust from your trim with a vacuum or cloth. If your trim is dirty, use a highly diluted solution of dishwashing liquid to clean it. Then let it dry.
Apply painters tape to the walls and floor or ceiling bordering the trim.
Now you're ready to paint. Paint with the grain of the wood using short strokes to coat the surface. Then use longer, smoother strokes for an even, finished surface.
