Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer-Sealer 1Ltr
I bought this product because it was recommended as the best primer for repainting old furniture to give it a new lease of life. It was terrific to use, even for a novice like me. It seemed a little thin at first but it certainly did the job. Phoned Screwfix in Inverness for some extra advice and they were very helpful and knowledgeable about their range of products. Great product and staff.

Amazing results in quick time
Bought this to help with two problems:-
1) To cover previously stained hardwood window and door frames; and
2) To block out knotting stains on internal softwood door frames.
This water based product is quick and easy to apply with rapid drying time (30mins)
By hand sanded down all surfaces then two coats of Zinsser applied to everything and then one coat each of undercoat and topcoat produced fantastic finish.
Also being water based - all brushes cleaned in water again with brilliant results.
Not a tradesperson, but a DIY'er who likes perfection. This product makes the job easy.

Not for professional use
Okay, that's tongue in cheek. I got a professional decorator to use Zinsser and the results were poor, to say the least.
He swore blind that he had stirred it thoroughly and it did look opaque in the tin, but when I had stirred it the results were fantastic, covering bleeding sap that had resisted other treatments.
So, to all those who have had poor results - did you stir it very very thoroughly?
