Painting over tung oil? Sign In/Join

I have a pie safe that I plan on using the homemade chalk paint on. But I got to thinking, it has had tung oil on it. Do you think a good cleaning with TSP will be enough to make the paint stick? It is not shiny at all and it has been about 6 years since it had a last coat of tung oil on it. I could prime it but didn't want to if I didn't have to. Anyone know?

Since I got no replies on this, I went ahead and cleaned my pie safe well with TSP and primed and used chalk paint on it. So far, so good. Have to put the doors on now and will post a pic when it is all done.

Well TSP is a powerful cleaner that can remove the gloss from not only paints but also for other cleaner on a painted surface while you plan for repainting. It will made the mixture of paint more softening and slightly roughening so that the new paint coats will be stick on more better way. The effect of this oil is very effective.
