By: 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:
- Apply two coats of a quality interior paint on top of the primer.
More information on primers is available on our website at A Homeowner’s Guide to Paint Primer.
Good luck with your project,
