Asked on Dec 22, 2012
I'm going to paint my inside bannister. It's currently painted white. I used semi-gloss latex. My new color will also
be semi-gloss latex. Should I use primer first, or just clean it really well to remove any surface dirt or oil from hands, or lightly sand it first or what? When I painted it white, the paint on the "knobs" -- don't know what they're really called, but are at the top and bottom of the stairs, rather quickly started to wear off. Don't want that to happen again, so what to do?
