I hope you’ve had a great week – I have been uber-busy transforming this
naughty knotty pine room into something bright, fresh and inviting. It has been a challenge, because apparently, knotty pine doesn’t go gently into that goodnight. But, I’m beating painting it into submission. I look forward to sharing a tutorial to hopefully ease your pain if this project is on your home improvement list.
Let’s look at the progress, shall we? Here it is before I got started.
Although, I think to really appreciate it, you need to see the room when they were looking at the house. These homeowners really had vision.
Another angle – before:
I was so excited to take a break from
naughty knotty pine to slap a first coat of paint on the door. It’s this lovely, sunny yellow – Hawthorne Yellow, by Benjamin Moore.

Looks bright and new. Love that yellow. I must find something to paint in that color.

Have any of the knots come through since you did this work.. I am undertaking a large knotty pine room and have heard that nothing stops this knots from bleeding through…..not shellac or Kilz Bin Zinsser

I did this for a customer (and friend). She never told me there was an issue, so I’m assuming that all is well.

Love it! How did you prep the knotty pine before painting?
JennyAugust 17, 2018 at 11:16 am
Cleaned and sanded it, and make sure you prime it with BIN to seal in the knots.
