I am painting my old bedroom set that had previously been varnished. I have prepared the area by sanding the surfaces. I then applied the primer, to no avail as yellow spots bled through. Do I have the incorrect primer? Did I not sand the area thouroughly? I tried to apply the white furnisher paint, but had the same problem again. What do I do?

Hi AntAnnAri,

NOT my area of 'expertise'.

BUT, if you can, visit your local paint retailer (found in the YELLOW PAGES under PAINT - RETAIL) and ask them. If possible, bring in a 'sample' of the bedset. They'll know for sure. Try to avoid the Home Centers. I just think the 'material quality' you need (primer/sealer and finish paints) are much, MUCH better at the Sherwin-William stores, and the like. (This, I CAN attest to!)

My best to ya and hope this helps.
