Default Repainting Interior Stairs

Have a customer who owns a house likely built in the thirties. Set of interior stairs had oil enamel on them and she decided to repaint them with an acrylic latex stair paint. Due to little or no correct prep, the acrylic is now easily peeling.

Going to be sanding them down and should end up getting about 99% of the newer paint off, divots and a few gouges being the areas it likely won’t easily come off of. Figured I would hit them with a good bonding primer, or oil based primer, then redo them in an acrylic enamel again just to get away from using an oil. But going back to an oil would be another option.

Since I don’t typically paint stairs, I’d like to hear some of your thoughts as to the best products for this scenario (note - no pets or kids in the home so stairs will get gentle use, although that didn’t seem to make a difference in her paint coming off anyway). I have easy access to SW, Miller, KM, and BM products.

Thanks -

I did a set with SW Treadplex several years ago in a dark brown that are still holding up well.

I've been using the same process on my stairs as my cabinets with good results.
Priming with Stix and then Advance Enamel. Usually over Clear coat but can't see why it wouldn't work over the oil too..
Obviously oil over oil would be best except for smell...
