updating our


from frumpy to fab

lost in the 60's

Once demo was done it was time to secure the newel posts and then add spindles.


what's black and white and gorgeous all over?

It was time for me to paint! I used bright white for the spindles and Tricorn Black for the rail and newel posts

To break up the tall entry wall we added inexpensive board and baton and painted it white like the trim.
