I'm so glad that I found this forum and am hoping to get some advice. I'm looking to paint a set of wood veneered bedroom furniture. I've heard great things about Zinsser BIN primer, where sanding is not required prior to priming. This is great news for me ... the less mess & work the better. However, I've heard that the smell of this primer is awful. I'm a bit concerned about this as I will be painting inside the house. I've noticed from the Zinsser website that they have a new Bullseye High Hide Odourless primer. Does anyone have any experience in using this product? Would this work on wood veneered furniture?
BIN would be your best bet. Since it's an alcohol based product yes the odor is terrible. But it dries very quickly and the odor dissipates in a hurry. It's bearable for me to get the results that it gives.
