    Default Cedar Trim

    My house has unfinished cedar trim throughout the house. I am tired of the wood look. Can I paint the cedar trim?

    A tinted stain would be better as the tannin in cedar doesn't get along with paint. It peels and flakes.

    If it was my house and I wanted to paint the cedar, I'd do it. I'd probably use a good primer, like Kilz on it and then just paint the wood with a good enamel. Kilz will seal the wood pretty well and eliminate the worry of the flaking.

    Good Luck.
