I wouldn't use water based products either, but don't know what the op will use.

Minwax, satin polyurethane, and a high gloss white if thats what you want to do.

I would look at a Sherwin Williams product for the white, you can buy the poly anywhere.

I hate to give this advice, especially on this forum, but that sounds like a job for a professional. Stain AND paint, new construction - brother, there are so many ways this could go wrong. The fact that it is expensive is a clue - it's a lot of work and it takes considerable skill to make it look right.

Don't let me stop you if you have your heart set on doing it, but this is an especially tough project because you don't even have the option to follow the pattern of the previous painter. And if it gets spoiled, it is twice as much work to restore it as it is to do it right the first time. It's manageable for a diyer who already knows painting and staining, but a brute of project to try to learn.
