Painted Peg Rail

I accomplished a couple of other tasks associated with this project before arriving at the point of painting. First I drilled the holes for mounting, then I filled in any gaps at the base of the pegs with wood putty sanded the entire rail. Please accept my apologies for the lack of documentation in photographic form.

I decided to paint the peg rail white. In all honesty, I thought it looked very pretty in its natural state. I considered treating it with some oil or rub on poly, however; I knew that a good coat of oil paint would be like an additional coat of glue. White is safe and practical. I just happened to have a full can on hand, so Rustoleum Satin Oil in White it was. Thus far I have one coat on the rail. I suspect it will take three coats to cover.

To be continued...
