painting a already white wood railing
 
I cought a segment on a decorating show where they painted a white wood interior railing dark brown. I think they sanded it and used a cheese cloth to wipe on paint. Anyone have comments on this

I painted an oak railing dark brown and white. Lightly sanded entire railing and posts, then primed and painted using semi gloss paint. I sed a brush and small roller. Hope this helps! I am very pleased with how it turned out!

Nor sure I understand you. This was not some hideous show like "Design on a Dime" was it? And you are not just one of those junior PR agency wanna be a real account exec someday having fun with us are you?

Sorry, I am into nice paint brushes and real paint. I cannot imagine why anybody would try to paint a white staircase with brown paint and cheesecloth.

You sharing the whole story?
