          The B-I-N 1-gallon Shellac-Based White Primer-Sealer is suitable for priming and sealing interior surfaces and for spot priming on exterior surfaces. The primer-sealer is formulated to adhere on dense, smooth or slick surfaces without pre-sanding for flexible application and the high-hide formula helps prevent persistent stains from showing through.

          I had over 500 square feet of yellowed, varnished 1950's very knotty pine in my basement. After washing the paneling down with the recommended 1 part lemon scented ammonia (HD cleaning supplies) to 6 parts water, I put two coats on BIN then finish paint. See the attached pictures. (I had been advised to tear all the paneling out and fir, sheetrock and paint.)
          The previous owner left the sun porch raw, varnished plywood. Dark and yellow after all the years. We washed the plywood down with the ammonia and water (1-6) then two quick coats of BIN and finish paint.

          I primed my new bathroom with BIN on the theory that if it will seal in stains and smells it will seal out mold. I still intend to add mold and mildew additives to the finish paint.
          The back wall of the sunporch was that fake wood paneling. You know the kind that has vertical lines and is a picture of wood. Two quick coats of BIN then finish paint.
          Tips: Heavy duty alcohol smell. Didn't bother me but some people may need a $30 mask available at HD. BIN dries FAST (Less than an hour to re-coat) so pour only as much as you intend to use and use it all. Wrap rollers and brushes in plastic wrap if you are going to take even a short break. Buy alcohol by the gallon in HD paint. You'll need it. BIN must be mixed very thoroughly. Have HD mix it and if you don't use it that day take it back and have it re-shaken. BIN goes on very thin. Drop cloths and plastic are a must if you have anything to protect.Read Less
          Pros: Very Adhesive, Even Application, High Quality of Material, Easy to Apply, Easy Instructions, Good Coverage, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Protection, Dries Quickly, cleans with alcohol
          Cons: heavy alcohol smell. you may need mask

          Stroll through the full double-door opening of a Suncast Walk-in Shed and take a look around at all the stuff you can store. The size makes it great for housing all the large equipment you use, while the optional accessory kits increase storage space and offer easy access to smaller items. These walk-in sheds have reinforced gable-style roofs, are built for durability, designed to protect your stuff from weather, and look good doing it.

          My wife and I put this shed up in 6 hours over three days. We are both in our sixties. The shed went together easily and no single component was a physical strain for us. We put it at the end of our asphalt driveway where it is reasonably, not perfectly, level. The doors work perfectly and the little they were out of plumb was taken care of by two shim shingles under the base.
          One threaded stud on a door handle was stripped right out of the box but I used a metal nut to re-cut the threads. This shed is beautifully engineered. And so far it holds: lawn mower, string trimmer, leaf blower, Weber grill, charcoal storage container. Tomorrow I will go to HD to buy some easily installedRead More

And so far it holds: lawn mower, string trimmer, leaf blower, Weber grill, charcoal storage container. Tomorrow I will go to HD to buy some easily installed (self-tapping sheet metal screws) hooks to hang all of my wife's garden tools, large and small.
          We had HD deliver this item to our home. In the box this shed weighed 215 pounds. Once delivered I don't think any individual piece weighed more than 20 or 25 pounds,
          My local HD had this shed in stock so regardless of what the website says, check with you local HD.
          Three days of working together and I didn't even come close to losing my temper once with her. That's the keystone of good engineering!Read Less
