painting pressure treated wood

Posted by Cherry on July 21st, 1999 07:24 AM

Help. My husband and I are installing a railing system to our porch using pressure treated wood. We would like to paint it to match the rest of the house. However, we have been told a variety of things about painting this type of wood. We were told first that you cannot paint it at all. Then we were told that you could paint it but would have to wait 3 to 6 months before doing so. We have a small child, which is why we are installing the railing and are concerned that if we paint it, there may be some leaching out of chemicals through the paint. We appreciate all the help we can get. Thank you.
