primer didn't cure


I took our trim boards outside to prime them and left them out in a covered area. Now, 4 days later they are still sticky in areas. It is possible that the temperature dropped lower than the recommended temperature. What can I do now? Will it harden if brought to room temperature or do I have to strip it and redo?

Thanks

Bring them inside for a day, they should be fine. A little more info would help, type of primer, bare wood, etc.

Thanks, I'll see how they are tomorrow after being in over night. It's an old primer (can no longer marked, but I have used it recently with good result). The trim board was varnished, I've sanded and puddled it.
