Cottage Paint has the solution!

Clear Furniture Primer.

They have developed a clear primer that can help in a number of situations. Clear Furniture Primer will seal bare wood and allow you to distress back to the original wood color.

Simply apply one – two coats of primer. Then let it sit overnight before painting.

It will act as a basic blocker helping to seal most mild wood tannins and stains prior to or after painting.

It remains flexible to prevent paint cracking on a (Clean & Prep) cleaned surfaces that was never varnished or lacquered and has old trapped wax in the wood grain.

It will also bridge paint cracks that can occur over a contaminated surface to ensure the second coat does not crack as well.
