Excellent Idea Brody!

 

When you say "white primer,"  there are several options.

 

Personally, I like oil-based primer on wood.

 

It saturates the surface and leaves a durable base for your paint.

 

Oil-based paint is another excellent choice!

 

This product dries more slowly and self-levels into a perfect finish (if you simply leave it alone for about six-hours).

 

NOTE:

In cold or damp weather allow a bit more time.

 

If needed, turn up the heat slightly in your work area until the paint has completely cured.

 

Please come back and post a photo when you're done!
