Soooo I have completed most of the bookshelf my sister asked for and I think it turned out nicely not perfect and definitely not with out a little cussing and lost skin although both at a minimum. I have constructed and sanded the bookshelf and come to the last, she wants it painted. Now I admit my painting up to this point has been rattle can and on school projects mostly, although I did spray paint a three foot tall and four foot long buffalo for my step son for Kansas day although that is probably a different website as it was paper mache(or however you spell it).
My question or issue if you will is two fold first I made the project out of pine as it was cheap and this was in essence the second planned out project someone else might see, second I don’t know anything about painting furniture. Do I need to paint it with primer first of make sure there is primer in the paint? I seem to remember although not in time that pine is not a good wood to paint is that true?
She also wants some wooden decorations painted on the side, will the wood glue stick to the paint and if not what does?
