Topic tags/keywords: question resource pine finishing

First n foremost, Thanks to all the members for helping me get answers and ideas. They have been priceless on my new venture in woodworking…Especially Don W!

I started and built a pair of floating shelves for my daughter’s room. The only task remaining is the finishing. We agreed that we’d used a espresso color oil stain for rustic aged look. Initially she thought it was ‘Cool’ but now she wants it painted in opaque color…but lucky me, in same color.

Problem: I already layered in two coats of stain…today. How do I go about painting over this surface that already has oil stain on it…and what kind of paint do I need to use?

Thanks!

Once it’s dry paint over it. Oil base would probably be best but once the stain is dry it really doesn’t matter.
