Wwyd for base?

Are they varnished? If so then either you need to sand it down to remove it or use Zinser BIN primer as a base coat or the paint won't adhere properly.

Well more wwyu - what would you use? grin
I have some unfinished wooden I think pine slat built in wardrobes, think caravan style in my new house and while funds are tight for years to come we're just painting over everything...
What would you use?
White is the end colour for now
Do I need to prime or can I go straight to eggshell?
I want a Matt finish
If it was a colour or in future a colour will e in f&b Matt finish
I'm going for an ok look on a lazy time budget. I have 1 child free day tomorrow to buy stuff do all and be cleared up by 430pm pre nursery finish. I normally work ft and weekends are no go for other reasons so there is no carry over opportunity!! Thanks!
(btw can't afford decorator for this job incase anyone was thinking that- will use him on more important public display rooms wink)
