Painting over Knotty Pine walls. It seems like Cover Stain and BIN shellac primer will both work. Is one preferable?why

Asked by: Bob
Both can be used I prefer the shellac because it's alcohol-based and can be cleaned up with denatured alcohol or ammonia in water

is this good for covering old paint that maybe lead
Asked by: geo
most likely, not sure how you can tell lead paint from oil based, probably just as bad. This will cover any dark color, stained wood, avoid sanding lead paint, simply layer a paint over it.

1 gal. White Cover Stain Interior/Exterior Primer and Sealer (Case of 4) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 98.

We sanded and filled all the holes we found, but the old paint was so bad that it kept coming off as we sanded. This primer stuck to the old paint as a nice thick layer. Only downside to this primer is its very thick, smells AWFUL, stinks up the entire house for days as it cures. Make a back up plan to stay with friends and keep area well ventilated due to high VOC smell. It took about 3-4 days for the smell to go away fully with windows vented. Overall very satisfied with this product, have used it in the past with water based paint to cover it, works very well and a great overall result for many years to come.

We have moved into another house and my wife didn't like the ugly color on two of the wooden vanities. A very light once-over with fine sandpaper and a coat of this Zinsser primer and it was ready for a new color of latex paint. Both turned out great. This house also has a large basement and the original owner built, but never painted, a number of large wooden shelves which he immediately stacked old oily/greasy car parts and Lord knows what else on. I just wiped them off and used Zinsser primer before using a tough latex paint to cover them. The primer and paint have stuck to the wooden shelves very well. This stuff works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Worked as advertised. Blocked out stains and any bleed through. Converted our old medium dark brown trim to white. Used the primer WITHOUT sanding the trim then came back and sprayed the trim white with Behr Ultra in Satin. Looks awesome with no bleed through. The Ultra by itself did have some bleed through. Paint adheres well to trim even after 3 months and multiple bumps to the baseboard with the vacuum and such. Clean up with the oil based was messy even with thinner so would just recommend to throw away brushes when done.

And use that you may or may not be aware of is to mix it with plaster of Paris to make a swedish putty to patch peeling wallpaper in drywall dries fast and holds the paper down. Another use is to mix it with floor patch concrete mixes to speed up the drying as it dries from within as well as the top where is when you use water it drives from the top down. Have your technical people try it out

I use it on all of my cabinet reface/refinish projects, among other applications, and have never had a problem with it. I have even used it on melamine products, although I do recommend light sanding before application.

I have used for many years for high end painted furniture, cabinets and woodwork. Excellent bonding filler primer and sands easily. This is an oil base primer and should stay that way rather than water base.
