Trim on Window in Shower
We just recently bought our first house and we have our first DIY question!

Our house was built in 1965 so like many houses of this time period it has a window in the shower of one of the bathrooms. The trim had recently been painted with what appears to be a semi gloss paint. The house had just been flipped after being vacant a year before we bought it (just FYI).

Is there something that I could paint the trim with to make it more waterproof than it is now. I understand that it will require a lot of maintenance but as it stands now we have owned the house 2 weeks and the fresh coat of paint on the trim is starting to peel a tiny bit.

Would an exterior paint work here?

Thanks in advance!

I would sand it down to bare wood and use an oil based paint.
