At the Messerly Residence here in Houston we refinished the rails to give them a darker stain that matches the floors, including stripping the paint off of the bottom rail. We repainted the end caps, and replaced the balusters. You can see our PC33/1, PC33/2, PC10/3, and PC8/5 balusters, in our Classic Black finish, in the ‘after’ shots below. As you can see, the over all effect is a rustic elegance.
This customer was having hardwood flooring installed so we removed the existing handrails and newels and then let the hardwood floor company install there flooring. We then returned to reinstall the Newel posts and railing with our PC18/1, PC18/2, and the PC33/2 Scroll all in our Old world Copper. Additionally we sanded and refinished the newel posts and railing to match the new hardwood flooring.
