I sanded the whole staircase a couple of days ago. My arms still feel like rubber!
Yesterday, Son #1 and I primed all the wood on the railings. This is the before and during so far.
Today Son #1 and I will paint the first coat of white Sherwin Williams ProClassic gloss paint on the spindles and the bottom where the spindles connect to the staircase. It probably has some important name but I have no idea what it’s called so I’m sticking with what I call it!!
I took a vote of the household on which color I should paint the newel posts. I already know I’m going to paint the railing black. There are 5 newels. I’ve seen where just the top is painted black and the rest is white OR the whole post is black. The boys all voted all black. I see a trip to Lowe’s in my future.
I can’t believe how bright the space is just painting over the oak wood. With how dirty the wood was wherever people touched it, I’m glad it will be black and not white.
Hope y’all are enjoying your week.
