I am in the process of re-decorating my living room. It has extensive crown molding throughout with a natural wood stain. I would like to paint over it, as the wood is isn't high quality and not worth highlighting. In addition, the dark finish just makes the ceilings look lower.
However, I'm uncertain as to whether or not I need to strip off the stain, or just sand and prime before painting. If I paint over the stain (which is just slightly glossy), will it prevent the paint from sticking?
