Affordable Home Styling | Creating a home with drama one adventure at a time. The HUNT is on!Wow! What a lot of work! I definitely like the painted pine better:) I was a little unsure when you first talked of painting over the knotty pine, but it looks fantastic:) Great choice:)Thanks TwoRoos, I just know we are really going to enjoy this house!HollyWow, looks so much brighter. Yes, a lot of work, but well worth it. Looks amazing! I'm excited to be your newest follower. I hope you will drop by my blog too! x Julie @ Restyle ReloveAwesome makeover.I have a family room in exact knotty pine, also the ceiling! But that not all, the ceiling in kitchen as well and cabinets in same ugliness. I have been looking at before and after pics to give me the inspiration I need to get off my butt and paint!!Start with one project, maybe the cabinets and see what happens... I'm thinking the ceiling could stay as is and be a nice contrast. Good luck!Thanks for stopping by,HollyThis comment has been removed by the author.I have kitchen cabinets in knotty pine and want to paint them white but im scared...Hi Renae,You can do it! Test a spot and see how you like it... It really brightens the room. Or maybe you can just change the hardware...Thanks for stopping by,HollyThanks for this great post! I came across your blog while searching on Pinterest for idea on painting knotty pine. I decided to tackle this task this weekend and put 1 coat of primer on my hallway. I'm wondering, how did you apply the primer? Did you use a regular paint roller or another method? I used a small sponge roller and a sponge paint brush. I'm wondering if a regular paint roller would work better. Concerned that it might not get in the grooves of the paneling though. Would love your thoughts and opinion. Thanks!Hello there,I started by just covering the knots with primer and a large paint brush. The knots have a tendency to bleed through so it will take more primer to cover them. Once I did that, we used painter rollers to cover the paneling with 2 coats of primer. I also used a big paint brush to get into the grooves of the paneling. Once the primer was set, we put on 2 more additional coats of Chantily Lace by Benjamin Moore. It's a long process, but well worth it in the end. Take your time and good luck! Let me know how you make out, I would love to see a before and after.Hollyp.s. In the hardware store they make a big 'fluffy' roller that is great for this. I'm thinking of painting the knotty pine paneling in my house too but I'm worry that the knots will bleed though the paint few years later. It would look awful and time consuming to fix it. Will the two coat Zinsser shallac base primer would block the sap from the wood knots so it will not show up later on. The paneling looks great but I'm worrying in few years later, the knots will bleed though the paint. suggestions?Thank you Holly! I'll let you know how it turns out. Very excited to get rid of the dark paneling! SusanI am SO GLAD to have found this post. My entire living room is knotty pine. Contractors said ripping it out and sheet rocking would be a huge ordeal and pretty $$. They suggested painting it. But my husband and I just weren't sure. Glad to see your primer tip! Every single person I've seen tonight has painted white over their knotty pine. I was thinking more of a fun color for us. I'm sure I can use whatever color I choose. I guess once you've had the dark, knotty pine - white is the most craved thing! LOLHi Staci,So glad you found it! It is hard work, but well worth it. White paint is not the only option. I've seen grey or the faintest sage- they look great as well. Have fun with it. If you look at our Beach Bunker Tour you can see all our 'before and afters'. Good luck and I would love to see your 'before and afters'.Thanks,Holly Thank you! Forgot to ask if you caulked anything??? Not sure whether to or not.Yes, any nail holes. I am a big fan of caulking, while others may not be. I also used a big paint brush and really got in those grooves. The whole process took two coats of primer and two coats of latex paint. HollyHi Holly, Did you do any scrubbing with a cleanser (TSP, soap?) and/ or sanding before applying the primer? Thank you!Hi there,I lightly wiped the wood with an old rag, mostly to take away and dust or spider webs away. I guess it would depend on the wood. If it was dirty, I would have. The primer will allow the paint to stick to the wood. Thanks for stopping by!HollyGreat improvement on your home. I have a tiny 8 foot by 24 foot tiny home. It was originally yellowish white pine wood. I painted it without using any primer as I wanted the knots to bleed through to give it an aged vintage look. I got just that and love it. But I also really like they way you did yours. Tonita @ www.ShabbyChicTinyRetreat.blogspot.com Hey - great work! A could questions for you:1. So you didn't sand at all then for more grip? The primer was sufficient?2. Did you have any holes or divets in the knots - and if so did you fill them with caulk too, or something else? Why not wood filler?3. How are your walls holding up now? Did the knots bleed through at all? 4. After painting do you need any additional sealer? I ask because I plan to do my kitchen cabinets but really don't want a semi-gloss look. I love the look of matte, but they still need to be protected, no? Or how can I keep the paint from chipping or being able to keep clean without rubbing off the paint? Any suggestions?Thank you!!Hi Tina,I did not sand the wood at all. But that being said, if I was doing kitchen cabinets I would. Kitchen cabinets get more wear and tear than the walls and the last thing you would want is to see some chipping after all your hard work. I am planning to do my kitchen cabinets as well using these exact products. I did not fill the knots on the walls and they did not bleed through. I think covering the knots with the primer first proves to take care of it. That way they get three coats of primer. I would do a satin finish on the cabinets just to give it that professional look. (It's in between matte and semi gloss.) If you sand them lightly, give the cabinets 2 coats of the BIN primer and finish with a couple of coats of paint-you should be fine with chipping. The primer dries fast so get it on and move on quick. It is going to be a big job, but it will be worth it in the end...that's what I keep telling myself any ways ;) I'd love to see it when you're finished! HollyWhy did you buy a house with so much of it if you hate it? That's a great question Jenni-lynn! I think this project goes to show that if you use a some imagination, you can make your house exactly the way you want it! A little paint goes a long way! While my husband and I loved the house, we knew that by painting all the dark wood paneling we could lighten the space and give it the "beachy" feel that we envisioned. With a little bit of hard work anything is possible! We absolutely love our house now. Thanks for stopping by!Thanks for this! The den in our new house is knotty pine and at first I was going to leave it but it feels so dark...I think painting it white may be the way to go. Question -- we also have built-in cabinets and bookshelves in knotty pine in the room, is there anything special you would recommend for painting those?Thanks for stopping by Allison! We have a built in cabinet as well in the living room and used the exact same products. I would use a small foam roller for the cabinet to roll the paint on just so it gives it a smooth finish. Let me know how you make out!Hello friends,thanks for shareing this interesting information.paint and wine westboroughsocial painting Hopkintonpaint night WorcesterMarlborough paint nightpaint bar FraminghamAshland paint barYour project looks great! I wonder if you would give me your advise please? I put one coat of BIN shellac on knotty pine waited a few days, then 2 coats of latex. The latex is peeling off of the shellac and in some spots the latex is also pulling off the shellac. Do I need to apply the latex to the shellac almost immediately after the shellac dries? thanks so much for your help!Hi Susie, I'm sorry to hear your project is not going well. I painted with the bin then after it dried I used the latex paint. Is your knotty pine real wood or a faux panel? What kind of latex paint did you use? I used Benjamin Moore, which is my favorite for all projects. I would suggest maybe lightly sanding the paneling first..especially if it was really glossy. I'm feeling your pain right now, that's a lot of work for your project to not come out right. Let me know how you make out..You have some honest ideas about the wood ceilings share here I really get many information and discovered most peoples will agree with your blog.wood ceilingsSuch a nice blog and i appreciate your all efforts about the garage di legno it's really good work. well done.garage di legnoNice job on the walls! Now, how about a coat of white on those ceilings?Thank you for sharing this interesting and informative article, painting with airless spray gun will be faster and more interesting!Hi Holly.I have knotty pine built in cabinetry in my living room as well as knotty pine wainscoting that I am hoping to paint white. I am concerned that after a few years, the knots will bleed through. I know your original post was in 2012. Have you had any issues with that happening?Hi Holly.I have knotty pine built in cabinetry in my living room as well as knotty pine wainscoting that I am hoping to paint white.
