tannin oils are not my friend

Please help, I am going crazy! I have a mahogany bed that I deglossed, cleaned, primed with a latex primer and 2 coats of white paint. 2 weeks later it is completely pink. I have stripped all the paint off, sanded and re-primed with Kilz oil based primer (2 coats) and I am still seeing peach/pink color bleeding through the primer. I am afraid to even bother coating it with paint at this time for fear it's still going to bleed through. Anyone have any suggestions before I simply give up???

Welcome to the forums!

The oil base kilz might be enough to stop the tannins from bleeding thru the top coat. Applying a coat of pigmented shellac primer [like zinnser's BIN] should guarantee no bleed thru.

I second the BIN recommendation. It's great. But it dries fast!

tannin oil

ok, I used the BIN primer and yes it took some time to get used to it beetween how fast it dries and it's consistency. I have applied 3 coats of it and I think I need another however, it seems to be working since I can only see a little bit of pink bleed through here and there. If the 4th coat of primer and coat of paint doesnt work I think I will just paint it pink and give it to someone with a little girl since my son defiinately wont sleep in a pink bed

I can't imagine anything bleeding thru multiple coats of BIN. You might want to try the finish paint on 1 section - I'd expect it to be alright
