Derailed! New Stair Railing Look, Guest Project

22 April 2010

This simple project from Jenn @ Jenn's Corner of Heaven made such a  difference to update the look of their railing.  Don't you think it looks so good.  This makes me think I need to finish the railing on my stairs...  "Honey!!"(me, calling the person who is actually going to do most of the work!)

A couple weekends ago, during all the snow, we were stuck inside. A new project was calling my name.

Country Oak - the color of our stair railing. I think it was hip in the 90's if you were in your late 40's. It's been on the to-do list since we moved in, just wasn't a priority.

Once again, a project that took me nearly 2 weeks to finish.

Terrible light in the last picture. Today is overcast and I didn't have much sunlight. But I was too anxious to share!

I am loving dark hand rails.  I am going to do this too.  
(If you have seen The Blind Side, they have dark hand railings it in the house, and Boy-oh-Boy it is so dang beautiful.  I pretty much love all the architectural details of that house... Go rent it today if you haven't seen it!)

I would love to do this to my stair railing. My golden oak color definitely needs updating!

We moved to our home last summer and put in dark bamboo floors making the oak look so tacky on our stair rail (as if it needed any help!);)

We've been putting it off because it will be such a task to keep it off the carpet and it smells bad, takes a long time to dry...I am totally dreading it but looking at these pics really motivated me, it will look so much better! Must start staining.... :)

This turned out so beautiful! We did the same and it makes a huge difference!
Take care
