Does anyone have any advice on the best and most professional method of painting previously stained and varnished woodwork? In the past I have sanded, primed two coats, and painted at least two coats in order to cover well. It takes forever. If there is a better, easier way, I would love to hear about it. If anyone has specific product recommendations and or a better procedure, please let me know. Thanks--tnjtremble

Sounds like you have the jest of it, only you can cut the 2 coats of primer to one. The only faster way to do this is with a spray rig, and if you don't have good experience with one don't use it.

Be sure to lightly sand after the primer coat dries, I would recomend 220 grit then tacking the dust off with a tack cloth, use good quality primer and paint from a reputable paint dealer.
