Last year I bought a 1920's condo and I have been slowly renovating. In several rooms I have this extremely dark almost burgandy/black stained doors and trim. I am going for a more modern look so I wanted to paint the trims Swiss Coffee(off white). I used Kiltz and a primer before painting 2 coats and unfortunately after a few months the reddish stain seeped through. Someone told me to try using a silver based paint before painting the white. It healped hold off the stain a little longer but eventually it started bleeding through. In some areas I have several (5-7) coats of paint and primer and I am getting frustrated. Does anyone know how I can get rid of this problem. Do I have to strip everthing off again and have to start over? Please help I am getting desperate and wishing for the day I can sit back and finally enjoy the finished project.
