Primer for baseboards


I have brown wood baseboards that are currently stained...I will sand, prime and paint then white.

Thing is...since its wood do I prime with oil based primer then paint with latex?

Yes, use oil based primer. The stain in the wood as well as the tannins in the wood will bleed right through a latex primer.

Thank you

I've read different opinions...but oil based makes more sense

You are here asking for advise and then recommending painting new drywall without priming?

Please do not answer a question unless you actually know the proper answer, it is confusing to the DIY

chrisn- the question was about painting a previously stained baseboard- not drywall!

I just completed one of my romms in my new home and used latex kilz and then semi gloss trim and had no problems at all.
