To all my friends and family, don’t feel bad about the dozens of times you have entered my house without noticing my railing make over….No hard feelings. Painting railing spindles is fun and I loved every minute of so it so it’s not like I was aching for someone to compliment them. Or notice them at all, or even glance at them.
My railing was a run of the mill builder grade, nothing fancy railing. Not terribly ugly. Not terribly attractive either.
Here are a few more shots of them in all their blandy-blandyness.
You may be thinking, my dear bloggy buddies, that I might have an addiction to painting stuff. But before you plan my intervention, check out my sweet new railing spindles!
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, if painting s&*t is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
Here’s one more….
This project stunk from start to finish. Painting the railing spindles were horrible- four coats on each long round skinny spindles. Not to mention deglossing, and the top sealer coat. But before that hell, I had to tape each spindle- top and bottom. Stink. Stank. Stunk.
That said, even though no one noticed, I do love the results. I think they lighten up the whole area. Feels fresher and goes better with my favorite thing about my house- my painted stair risers. I just tell myself they look so great and professionally done, my dear visitors just assume they’ve always been that way. When I get my nose job I am hoping for the same reaction, no one notices exactly what I’ve done but are thinking to themselves, “Has she always looked this good?”
What do you think? One more before and after:
Until next time friends!
