I've made a blanker chest with floorboards from Leroy Merlin. Now I come to paint, its all a bit confusing now. In the olden days when a good sniff of paint was as good as a stiff whisky I'd buy knotting compound, wood primer and a suitable gloss to cover (sometimes an undercoat too).
Now I can buy primer/undercoat for wood, stain resistant shellac primer undercoat and all costing more than the plain gloss I will cover it with.
Whats my best budget way of doing it?
