I know it is best to sand the trim between coats but do you also polyurethane it or leave it at the stained finish? I am pretty sure I will have to stain the steps to the second floor with a brush as I don't see any way to spary those.
Any advice is appreciated.
My brother-in-law is a professional painter and he did my house, paint and stain. He stained all my trim and did it with a rag or sponge, just wiped it on. I wouldn't go through the effort of spraying...
