Paint raw wood of book shelves
My husband is making book shelves for a room. He is purchasing wood from Lowe's, and says it is white wood. It is not a special or fine wood, and we will paint the book shelves a light tan using a glossy paint. The whole side of the room will be book shelves.
I hate to use a primer, and we tested a color, and it looks fine to just use the color without a primer.
Why should we use a primer?
Thanks for any information you can give us.
