Default Whitewash stained knotty pine

A customer wants his stained knotty pine bedroom painted. I told him of the extra time required to prime the wood because of the knots, and stain, bleeding thru. He didn't want to pay for that. Go figure. However he said he didn't mind the knots, he just wants it brighter. Can previously stained knotty pine walls be effectively whitewashed or use a "white" stain? Everything I seen on the web was whitewashing on fresh pine.

Thanks,
Cardgunner.

How dark is the stain? I think if you go for a white wash type stain your gonna have a lot of bleed through with the old stain. With a paint I don't you'd have any issues, just a light prime and finish

Stain is pretty dark. I don't think I could get away with a light prime and finish. Those knots would bleed thru. I've always needed to do a shellac prime.

With a whitewash the knots AND the grain come thru. It makes a difference.

But isn't that the point of a wash? If I understand it correctly a wash is a light coat to have some sort of transparency.

But I've seen a lot of people call white painted surface a wash lately so....who knows.

Sounds like basically a faux finish job to me. What do you plan to do? White primer to get rid of the dark stain? Not sure how you'd get away with a transparent white on top of a dark stain.

Post pics if u do it.

If they want a transparent stain a full strip is in order

Would not the clear finish that is on there now minimize the bleed thru. Assuming there is a clear finish.
