Painting Stair Railings

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

It was originally white, but my dad painted it teal. It’s been a couple of years now, and I want it to be back to it’s original colour. How should I start? What are steps that I should take from now to achieve my goal? I’m a first-timer so I really don’t know what to do and where to start? Should I peel the paint off, peel the paint off and paint over it, or just paint over it? Thanks…

The first step is to clean off any grimy finger prints and the like. Any good household cleaner will work. Once that is done you need to remove any peeling paint and do the repairs is needed. Repairs could be fixing broken pieces of wood or patching areas that have split. After the repairs are done I recommend priming the entire set of railings then painting with an acrylic paint.
