    Though i've never tried it, I'm doubtful it will adhere very well or leave a very nice finish. I wouldn't try it myself as it will make you much more work if it starts to peel off.
    If your worried about drying times get a can of water-based paint suitable for wood equivalent to your not a big fan of water-based myself but it dries in a couple of hours. Costs just under £11 for a 750ml can of Dulux water-based gloss/satinwood/eggshell which should cover upto 12 square metres

    Masonary Paint isn't ideal for concrete floors / stairs as it isn't designed to take foot traffic, so therefore will wear off pretty quickly. ideally you should be using floor paint for this, which is specificially designed for concrete floors.

    Again Masonary paint isn't an ideal candidate for timber due to its adhesion qualities. The clue's in title.
    Eat vegetables and fear no creditors, rather than eat duck and hide.
