Paint it white

We painted over stained woodwork, but the stain is showing through. Where do we go from here?

We just spent the afternoon painting the woodwork in our dining room. We used an Acrylic Satin Enamel from Hallman Lindsey in white, we were painting over old stained woodwork. We used a paint sprayer. Here's what everything looked like before
Here's where we are at now

The paint is white, but what we've got is a cream-ish yellow inconsistent color. We have done several coats with the sprayer. We would like to get this to white. Now having read a little bit online, it seems like potentially using a stain blocking primer might have been a good idea, but we didn't. Can we still? Should we just wait for this paint to cure and then go over it again? Is there something else we should do?
