To Prime, or Not to Prime? That is the Question!

Ok, so I admit. That was a little dramatic...ok, a lot dramatic!  If you have ever painted a piece of furniture, I'm sure you have asked yourself this very same question.  I would love to know your answer!  I'm kinda a not to prime kinda gal.  However, with all the pieces I currently am working on, I think I'm turning into a prime kinda gal!

And all of this brings on a whole new question...What  kinda of primer do you prefer? There are many to choose from....and from experience, I am not a Zinzer gal. In fact, I really haven't found one I do like. I'm thinking of trying the Benjamine Moore Super Primer.  Have any of you tried this primer?

Enlighten me! PLEASE! 
Let me know your thoughts!


  1. I prime because my husband tells me I should. He's been painting furniture longer than I have so I just do what he says, otherwise I would have no idea why or when to prime. He uses Kilz so I use Kilz BUT I have been seeing more blog talk about Zinsser. Sorry, I know my comment is 0% helpful.

    Love your new table by the way!

  2. I've painted enough to look at the piece and know if it needs primer so this may not be helpful but I'll try :). Generally if it needs lots of holes or crackes filled, I prime after I fill them. Or it's a very dark stain or paint, I'll prime that too because I paint almost everything white. I ALWAYS use Kilz oil-based primer. Covers anything, stinks like all get-out..and totally worth it.
