Looking for baluster painter

      by

      looking for a place to get my balusters painted. I tired doing this myself today and it didn’t come out that great. The balusters are new oak and I need them painted in a nice satin white finish. Does anyone know of a place that specializes in such a thing? Thank you.

      1. The oak is going to be tough to paint as the grain will come through. It would probably be a good idea to prime them a couple of times with a good oil base undercoat, then a light sanding with 220 paper. Top coat with Satin Impervo. Maybe two coats of Impervo then wait a few days and sand that out as well. Even then I am not sure how it will come out (oak is not meant to be painted; it should be stained and/or clear coated).
