While working on window trim, I screwed up an edge profile on some long pieces of 1×6 pine I’m using. Couldn’t use them for the big window, but can easily use them for the smaller windows. I had stained them with an oil-based stain that says it can be poly’ed with water-based poly after 24 hours dry time. The stain was Ipswitch Pine, so not very dark. Kinda approximates the look of pine that’s been in the house already for 60 years.
Anyways…. in the kitchen, we’ll be painting the trim. Do you think I’ll be fine just using a good primer and then painting? The paint color is called Moderate White. So it’s a slightly antique white. An “almost white” white. My question is because I don’t want any of the stain to bleed through the white.
I don’t have any dewaxed shellac on hand but can get some easy enough if that would be the way to go. I just don’t want to add that step if I really don’t need it. :)
