Bookcase restoration project - what products should I use?

Hello Mitchell,


Planning to paint this bookcase. It looks like its got a stain on it. Can you suggest what products I should use?

Re: Recent cabinet refurb

Hi @Dee2,


As with KMP's project, I would suggest using Rust-Oleum 1L Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Undercoat Primer Sealer Stain Blocker. This will prevent any of the stain bleeding through your topcoats. It would be a good idea to sand the whole bookcase with 120grit sandpaper before applying the undercoat as this will ensure a great bond.


If you need further assistance, please let us know.
