Question

BIN primer in kitchen


I have a '46 vintage house with a wooden tongue and groove ceiling, unpainted. I used BIN primer (oil base) on it and it came out wonderful! I like the bright white so much, I was wondering if I can just leave it as is or if I have to paint over it for some reason? There might be a reason I haven't thought of. Thanks!

BIN primer in kitchen


Hi sheila, BIN primer, the proper primer for t/g, is a shellac based product, not oil. It reduces with denatured alcohol as opposed to paint thinner. As to your question, I don't think I would leave it unfinished because I think in time it will discolor. What I would do is do a BIN sample, couple of coats, on a piece of wood and take it to a paint store, not HD, and tell them you want the closest match in color and sheen and you should find something that will imitate the look you have now, and be more appropriate for the long term. Good Luck.

You should paint it. Primer provides adhesion for the paint and also provides for uniform color. Paint is what actually protects the surface. Like Joe said if the primer is left unpainted it will probably fade over time , but it is also not protected. Most primers are suppose to be painted in the range of 15-30 days after priming. Joe had a good idea about making your sample on a piece of wood and bringing it to a real paint store.

BIN primer in kitchen


I'll paint it tomorrow (then I can finish the rest of the kitchen)! I guess because I've lived with that dark dingy ceiling for a year (when I bought the house), it's sooooo nice to have the brightness of the white!
Thanks for your exper-tese (sp?), it's appreciated!

P.S. Joe, does that mean I need denatured alcohol to get this stuff off my arms and whatever is on my face/glasses - haven't looked in the mirror yet LOL? I asked at HD and she said thinner would work...hummmmmmm

Sheila, read the back of the can for where it says clean up. BIN is a Zinsser product and is shellac, but Zinsser makes a product called Cover Stain, which is an oil product. But, cover stain doesn't have "BIN" on the front. BIN cleans up with denatured alcohol or ammonia. It comes off my skin with a rag in the shower, so the oils in your facial skin should make it somewhat easy to remove with a wet terry rag. Clean your glasses with whichever you have. Take Care.
Joe

Well, if it is BIN, thinner will not work
