I recently did the same thing in my house. I just gave the wood an undercoat first and then two coats of gloss. Came up very nicely and still looks good 6 months later.

:D My unhelpful latenight comment was meant for diamond geezer - who didn't know where to start.
On the other hand I can answer your question:
how man days
- clearly the answer is "Friday".
You say 'a brown staircase' you mean painted brown or previously stained or varnished?

The reason being if it is stained or varnished then you will need to adopt a different approach and paint system.
