Question

Knots bleeding through new painted trim


In my recent bathroom remodels, the door and window trim had some knots. It was primed and then 2 coats of semi-gloss latex. Now, after about 6 weeks, the knots are starting to bleed through. Is there something I can do about this that won't involve stripping everything down?

spot prime the knots with BIN and repaint. Should just need to repaint the spots.

Bin makes several primers.. use the one that is shellac based for this to work

Zinsser makes several primers, I didn't know that more than 1 was labeled BIN though

Either one? And no problem with applying over semi-gloss and then semi-gloss on top?

Actually there are three BIN products now. You have the original white shellac. A clear shellac primer (isn't that just shellac?) And now there is BIN 2, which is a cheaper alternative. It's basically a heavy bodied alkyd that isn't very good for anything they say it is.

Thanks for the heads up on that. I've only seen the original in my area. Not much to pick from around here. ACE hardware, Home Depot and WalMart.

Ok, so I want the one that says ultimate stain blocker and maybe something about shellac?

And I can just put it over the current paint and then repaint on top?

That's all I've ever done. I think the stuff will stick to Jello
You do want to clean it good first, it will stick to dirt just fine but don't know what the dirt will stick to.

Thanks! It's pretty clean only having been painted a few weeks, but I'll give it a wash anyway. I appreciate the help!
