Change That Bannister Into Something You’ll Love DIY

This before photograph could have been taken in my house.  I’m really over the light oak stain and this DIY bannister project is a great way to change it.  Maybe you prefer color rather than a different stain.  I say go for it!  Thanks to Create & Babble for the idea.

Update a Bannister

Last week I talked about how I renewed the grout of the slate floors in my hallway. I am thrilled with my new-looking slate floor! But it did call attention to the outdated and tired-looking bannister. It screamed to be updated. Take a look at how I updated my bannister in just a couple of evenings with a little stain and paint.

The original finish was a little worn and dated.
