    I want to use chalk paint to paint some old dining chairs, but I've read that bleed though may be a problem.

    I used Zinnser Cover Stain a couple of years ago and found it quite tricky to paint with, being quite a thick paint. It did seem to do the job though. I think I gave the tin to somebody, so will need to buy more primer.

    Should I stick with the Cover Stain, or would it be maybe better to try the Zinnser BIN primer.

    However, would a single coat of the BIN be enough to prevent any bleeding ... just asking as I understand that sometimes a second coat of BIN will weaken the first coat if more than one application is made.

    I used Zinner Bin on a varnished staircase a few years ago and had no problems.
    I did rough sand them first to provide a key for the Zinner and only applied one coat.
