NEWER boards may con­tain resinous knots, which will need to be sealed with knot­ting so­lu­tion to pre­vent the resin bleed­ing through and spoil­ing the paint.

Al­ter­na­tively, you can use Ron­seal Knot Block Wood Primer & Un­der­coat (from £7.98 for 250ml, B&Q), which seals the knots, primes and un­der­coats in one, sav­ing you time and ef­fort.

You’ll need to ap­ply wood primer/un­der­coat to all the boards – try di­lut­ing the first coat with about 10% of white spirit so it pen­e­trates the wood bet­ter.
