Thanks Immi,
I do like this better but I might not have been motivated to change the color without the bleed through problem. :) I appreciate all the encouraging comments you leave for me!,

This turned out beautifully. I know it was a LOT of pain but I love this layer of color. I had the bleeding problem with a china cabinet I did a couple of years ago. I ended up using several layers of oil based primer (I had initially primed with water based primer – just to save paint) after the first primer and a couple of coats of ASCP in Pure White. So all in all I had maybe 8 coats? That’s a lot of painting on a big piece! Anyway, thanks for sharing your beautiful pieces. I always look forward to seeing your pieces.

Karen,
it would be daunting on a china cabinet. This was a relatively small piece. The few times I’ve had bleed through there were always signs that it could be a potential problem. Next time I will err on the side of caution because once it starts it seems like it is 3X more work to contain it. I say that now…. Thanks for commiserating!,
Leslie
