First off, could you please click on your username and update at least basic geographic location so we know where you are?

Why are you wanting to paint and not stain again? Is this still on the exterior or have you rescued an old barn and brought the siding indoors?

If it is still exterior I would think about putting a nice, quality, 100 percent latex acrylic solid color stain over the top of what is there rather than painting. It will come in a rainbow of colors. If you have an MAB (Sherwin Williams subsidiary) store (I don't know if they still exist?) near and you give them a couple of days, they will match any color you have in mind. I hope SW didn't mess up the formula because it was a gift from God for applications like yours, fences and so forth. It was even decent for use on horizontal surfaces. I think it has been renamed Deckscapes but used to be Timberline or something like that?



You will have to prep properly but will not have to prime. Use a big thick roller cover or sprayer. Apply coats until you get the coverage you need. Touch up every so often.

If you really want to paint it? Interior or exterior you will need to prep and then prime it with something like Benjamin Moore (alkyd) Fresh Start. Then apply two coats of latex acrylic finish. Use real paint store paint, not box store crap.

I cannot really help suggest how to prep without knowing more about your project.

If it is indoors, priming and painting is probably your best bet then. Benjamin Moore Fresh Start Alkyd would be a good starting point for primer.
