It also most likly has a sealer on it. It's going to need to be sanded, wiped down with mineral spirits, primed with a bonding primer then painted.

depends on the condition of sealer/finish. this determines how much "grab" youll need for paint to stick.

i.e. priming almost certainly, some sanding likely...

JoeCaption hit it on the head. Sure it wouldn't look nicer with a nice restain? In most cases, people only stain something if the wood is a good quality. Sometimes it's not worth it painting over something that can look so good stained.

I don't like the idea of wiping the surface with thinner if you are planning to use a latex primer. Thinner will leave an oily residue on the surface which may create adhesion problems.
