painting a spindle railing
 
how do I paint a spindle railing? The finish is not worn off but it needs some kind of topcoat. I thought I might steel wool it then maybe use a verathane as a to finish. I am not sure on how to put a finish or what to use.

A nice quality angled 2.5 inch sash brush will work nicely. Anything smaller will not hold enough material.

They also sell cutesy mini roller schemes for spindles. I have honestly never used one but I guess they could work.

If you are painting them and they have been stained and varnished? I think a bonding primer would be a good idea.

You said paint, and then said Varathane- which is a clear.
To help us be clear- what is on it now, and what do you want it to be.
Will help us to help you- be clear and detailed.

it is stained and all I want to do maybe light sand it and then put some kind of clear sealer. Do you recommend a deaf thane, verathane or what do you suggest

Nice brush for solvent products and a polyurethane would be what I would reach for first. But you know, if I thought about it, a clear epoxy reinforced acrylic coating might not be a bad idea. It will not yellow.

Ask your real paint store. Or if you are near water? Marine paint suppliers will be up on the latest clear coat products.

I don't know what Sds is talking about- but my fav interior waterborne poly that is strong and easy to use is Zar UltraMax modified alkyd.
Used it today- great stuff- low odor, dries quick.
Some Ace Hdwr stores carry it- some paint stores. Not at HD or Lowes.

Would this ultra max be also good for refinishing kitchen cabinets?

Sure - but remember to clean well. scuff sand- wipe and possibly stain where needed...

In my area the big box stores do carry ZAR products I'm not sure about this particular one but they may be able to order for you.
