The wood was primed first of all.The doors and drawers were taken to my workshop where all removable parts of furniture and kitchens are taken.

My go to primer is Tikkurila  Otex.It is oil based.It has the ability of ensuring tannins do not bleed through in the future.On this particular project, tannins were not going to be an issue, but there is nothing like a belt and braces approach.This primer is an adhesion primer too,so it makes the furniture being painted virtually un-chippable.
