How to Paint Knotty PineBy: Danny Lipford
Is there a product that will cover up the knot holes in knotty pine should I decide to paint the wood a light color? -Judy
Knots, like those found in knotty pine, can pose a problem when painting, since the resin in them has a tendency to bleed back through the finished surface. To prevent this:
- If the boards have been varnished, lightly sand them and wipe off any dust before priming so the primer will adhere well.
More information on primers is available on our website at A Homeowner’s Guide to Paint Primer.
Good luck with your project,
