Can I paint over varnish as long as it is scuffed and rough edges sanded? Would I use an oil base paint?

Painting is very possible. Sanding is a great way to get it ready. For the paint you can use an alkyd porch and deck paint. It will take a couple of coats to get a solid color. The best part is priming isn't necessary.
