    "Yes, you need to prime first, undercoat then gloss. If you are painting shiny/smooth wood the product will differ. the product called zinner primer is put on the shiny based wood before any gloss painting begins.

    Hope this helps"

    "You should be fine just using a good gloss paint, unless you’re changing the colour of it. Then it’s better to give a light sand, and undercoat. It will help you a lot when painting a new colour."

    "Primer is essential for the painting of bare wood surfaces it gives a slightly absorbent smooth surface that stops top coat flaking off easily"

    "No you don’t need prime on it unless bare areas, just undercoat and gloss"

    "Hi, primer is needed for bare timber or well sanded varnish. If you are using oil based gloss, it will need an undercoat. If you are using acrylic (water based paint) then you wont, unless previously varnished, as it is self undercoating. If the furniture is varnished you will need a special primer.
    I hope this helps."
