Default Got a problem with the stairs

We were trying to cover old paint on the interior stairs, so I asked the guy at home depot... he said use deck paint. So we sanded and painted it on a couple layers. I think it is not taking well cause its cracking off. The old paint on the stairs may have been oil based. Any ideas how to fix this, preferably without redoing everything?

Seriously doubt there IS any way short of redoing everything. Stripping off the failed coating that is.

In any case, you should take this over to the DIY forum. This is the pro section, and this thread will be closed shortly. Several of us, and other pro painters, hang out at DIY and would be glad to help you there.
