Topic tags/keywords: question pine finishing

I’m building an outdoor table to match my in-laws set and will finish it with a gloss white paint to match.

I wondered if i should use some type of sealer before painting the wood, or will the paint be enough? I’m using pine since it will be painted I didn’t think the added cost of a good outdoor wood was worth it.

Thanks in advance.

I think a good primer would be sufficient. Recomend Kilz because it would seal in any pitch that may be hanging around.

I agree wih Joe. Kilz followed by at least 2 coats of paint.

Paint alone would probably do it, but Kilz will give you a great base for your paint.

Have your say...
