Painting Foot Rest On A Bar


Hey all..

I recently built a bar in my basement. It is made of mostly Oak Plywood and is stained. I am adding the wood for the foot rest that goes on the bottom of the bar and have decided I rather paint that black instead of staining it like the rest of the bar. It is just 2 pieces of Oak Plywood. What kind of paint should I use for this? I was thinking to polyurethane after I paint it since it will have peoples feet resting on it and I think black paint will leave shoe prints and dust and smudges from people's shoes on it. Would this be the way to go? Any and all advice is appreciated.

Thanks!

Primer it and topcoat with a latex floor and porch paint.
Floor and porch paint is often advertised to be self priming though no paint is a primer and no primer is a paint.

Any suggestions to a brand of that paint? Does it come in black?

I used Glidden floor and porch paint latex sold at Home Depot for my interior steps painted about 3 mths ago with no complaints thus far.

I'm trying to remember if black was a choice but something is telling me it was not, I think an expresso brown, which is the color I selected was the darkest tint. Valspar at Lowe's makes a good quality floor and porch paint and I'm betting they would have more color choices at Lowe's.

Unfortunately they do not have black in the floor paint. Since I only need a little bit anyway, I thought maybe I would try Rustoleum Professional High Performance Enamel black spray paint. Any advice? Do you think I need to polyurethane or anything over this ?

Thanks!

I would use oil being that it will see alot of wear. Oil primer and the Benjamin Moore Satin Impervo oil in the color of your choice. Nothing beats oil for durability.

The toughest paint available for your application is an epoxy. They used to all be two-part, messy and smelly, but Sherwin Williams has a few new epoxies that are not only pre-mixed, so they work just like paint, but they're also water-based and fairly eco-friendly. Here's a link: http://protective.sherwin-williams.c...3aproduct-6874
