Painting over stained oak wood
 
What is the best way to cover stained wood. Do you have to sand first? Are there any new products that make this easier?

Clean it, sand, clean again, bonding primer, then two coats of paint.

You might want to take a closer look at the wood, it looks very much like a laminate. Can you run your finger nail across the surface and feel the grain or is it smooth? If it’s smooth then it’s not wood. Either way Joe is giving you good advise for either.

Hold the phone!:no::no::no:
If it is laminate it is, at the end of the day, plastic fantastic. You will need something like a plastic primer (Rustoleum brand plastic primer comes to mind. It comes in liquid and rattle cans and you can paint over it with anything reasonable) or rattle cans of paint just for plastic like Krylon Fusion.

You might get a real paint store melamine paint to stick. Conventional primer, even high bond, and subsequent finish will not work. They are not formulated to adhere to a laminate or plastic surface. And I would not bet on the plastic primer or paints lasting as long as you might like without flaking off. :thumbsup:
