Painting OSB

Wendy asked 10 years ago

We recently built a 32 x 60 ft shop with OSB interior walls. We are now looking at painting the OSB, but not quite sure what to use for paint/primer. I also want to be able to spray the surface rather than roll it on and I need to use something that will not bleed through, as I want the nailing lines to be covered. Any suggestions? Thank you!

The paint can be any good interior acrylic. Satin sheen would be a good choice. The primer is critical. I would use Zinsser Cover Stain. It will stick and hide stains plus dry fast.

You can spray both the primer and paint but I recommend back rolling to help fill in any pores.
