Rated 5 out of 5Â by mnw240 Exactly what I needed
I needed to paint a laminate bookcase, and choosing the right primer was key. I looked online and found multiple people rated this primer as their "go to" for these kinds of projects. I searched online and found that Home Depot had a better price AND it was available for pickup at the local store. The product was perfect for laminate furniture; it's very sticky and clings to any material. Because it's oil based, it dries quickly and was really easy to get on. My only issue was I forgot it was oil based and attempted to wash my roller in my tub; as soon as I put it under the water, I knew that was a dumb idea. I had stains on my finger nails for a couple days. I live in a small New York apartment and painted the bookcase inside with a few fans on, my window AC on in one room, and a couple windows open in others. The smell was fine (nothing like the spray paint I used for another project), and the whole project took only a few hours from the time I started priming to the time I reassembled the bookcase (I painted 1.5" white and yellow alternating vertical stripes only on the back panel). It took longer for the actual paint to dry. I will definitely continue to use this primer when I want to update my laminate furniture or work with other difficult materials, and highly recommend it. A little goes a long way and it will save you time and money in the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by miclyn3 Best primer ever!
I recently used this product to prime an old hutch that I am painting. I didn't want to have to sand it since there was a lot of details. I read on several reviews that this would be a great product to use in place of sanding and they were right! It went on great and wasn't drippy! I've used other primers that have been messy and drippy. I got a little bit on my hand but it came off very easily. It also doesn't have a strong oder which is great. I will definitely use this one again!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DIYer Great for priming stained mouldings prior to painting
I used this to prime all of the stained wood mouldings (and window frames) prior to painting them. There was no need to sand which is the reason why I went with this primer. I used a latex topcoat and the results look great. Saved me a ton of money by not having to replace all of the mouldings. It is oil based so make sure you are prepared to do a thorough brush cleaning with paint thinner.
