Primer over paint on bare wood?

I am replacing the screens on our screen porch. I got a load of northern white cedar strips about 3/8 x 1-1/2 to cover the edges of the screen, Moorgard Fresh Start 100% Acrylic Primer, and Moorgard 100% Acrylic Low Lustre paint. Today I accidentally coated 2/3 of the unprimed strips in paint instead of primer.

What is my best course from here? Do I need to sand off the paint or get new wood and start over? Would it do any good to put primer over the paint? What kind of problems am I going to have from not priming correctly?

Put a couple coats on, you should be fine. It will do no good to apply primer now.
