Painting Pine
I am starting to paint my pine ceiling in the attic. I was wondering if I could use some leftover exterior primer, or if there is some sort of primer that would work well with pine. I would like to paint the ceiling white, so good coverage is needed.

Yes the primer you have is sufficient, unless some of the pine knots start bleeding through. Then you can cover those places with Kilz 2 or a similar product.

I would olny use a oil based primer. Kilz original oil based is a real good one. I have tried latex stain blocker before with poor results.

Oil based Kilz.. Pine is terrible about bleeding through at the knots.
No latex primer is going to stop it.

I have seen KIlx brand primer with Shallac in it. Would this be the right thing? or just their regular oil based primer?
