We painted a white banister to be black at a home in Zionsville. Check out before and after pics below. First we sanded the railings and posts extra well to promote adherence of the paint. Then we applied a coat of Extreme Bond Primer from Sherwin-Williams tinted gray to provide even more adherence of the paint and help convert to a darker color. Then we applied two coats of Emerald Trim from Sherwin-Williams black and in a satin finish. The paint we used is designed for woodwork and trim and withstands use and touch of hands better than an average paint. The satin finish gives the paint a nice subtle low sheen, compared to a semi-gloss paint which would appear too shiny in dark colors. Give us a call to transform your home with a painting project!
