Help! I had pine open tread stairs which were darkening our room so decided to paint them. I followed all the instructions and sanded, white spirit, primed, primed again and under coated twice. I then painted them with 2 coats of dulux timeless in satinwood. However the coverage hasn't been very good and now three months later the paint is wearing off. Any recommendations on what else I could do ie what paint I can use for it to be long lasting/wearable.
I painted my stairs a year and a half ago with Farrow & Ball floor paint in a white shade - Wimborne white and they still look as good now as when first painted. Farrow & Ball is very pricey but they are good. I've used Ronseal, Dulux and Crown in the past and unfortunately they just don't give as good a finish.
