Got some wall waynescotting, waynes coating, waynes wood.. Whatever it is.. It's beadboard w/decorative chair rail and it is stained and polyed. Painting it white.. I know the answer is on another thread somwhere but I'll ask anyway.. Do I HAVE to use oil? Or can I lightly sand and use a latex? Oh, it's in a bathroom...

Thanks! :drink:

All the above. Had a job a while back doing the same thing. Actually tried 3-4 primers until I found one that worked without failure. Ended up using BM Enamel Underbody. The ones that gave issue were Cover stain, Freshstart Acrylic, and BIN.....and these are always my favorites.???

You could wipe down the woodwork with Wilbond - and then apply an acrylic primer quickly right afterwards. At least since it's poly'd you won't get any bleed with the humidity if you choose latex primer. Or you could clean with TSP. Or just sand and use an oil based primer. Heck there are a million things you could do.

I'd recommend a nice, quality, oil-based primer
No need for high stain killing, mostly adhesion oriented

I'd use Fresh Start or Cover Stain
