    You need to prime paint it with Kiltz , it’s a primer and a stain blocker , works well

    What you have is "pitch bleed-through" and unfortunately there's not much you can do to stop it from bleeding through stain. Your best bet is to sand it off as much as possible, and like Gary said, prime it with Kilz and paint over it. Or, accept it and call it rustic character!

    yep, sand, prime (maybe two coats), and paint. If you want the natural wood with stain rather than paint, I think the wood needs to be aged so it's finished "leaking" and all dried out. Maybe someone else knows how long that takes :-)

    I agree with the above. I would sand prime and paint again.

    Shellac is how I stop bleeding when I paint furniture.

    Two or three coats of clear shellac seals the pores. First to do is use alcohol to remove all the sap you can.
