Priming Unfinished Oak
 
Hey guys, new on here so I hope this gets to where it needs to. I am building a storage unit out of cabinet quality unfinished oak. I will be painting a valspar off white latex kitchen and bath latex paint. I have already used aerosol kilz, oil-based, sanded went well with nice fine dust. I do not want to use aerosol again, it cost too much for the lack of coverage. What should I use for a second coat of primer? Oil based or water based latex? Brand names would help too. Thanks in advance.

There is no need for a second coat of primer.

Why are you using "valspar off white latex kitchen and bath latex paint":eek:

We wanted the same look and finish that we have on our bathroom vanities, so we are using the same paint.

Wife originally wanted to stain the piece, that's why such a high quality wood. Then she decided she wanted it painted...

Suggest to her that a distressed look would really look nice and beat that new oak with a heated chain before you paint. :icon_cheesygrin:
