Answered
Have you ever painted over pine ship lap boards that have already been stained? I am looking to update my room. I would like to paint the boards in white and the walls in Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore.. What are your suggestions so the paint doesn’t peel off, as I do not want to sand all the walls.

    Use a primer to make sure the stain doesn't bleed through and then you can successfully paint over the boards.

    I would use Kilz as a base coat. I’ve done this before and it works very well.

    The absolute best product to use is bonding primer...it will adhere to anything and then accept the new paint flawlessly.
