Janetc says...My real house built in 1903 has a stained banister rail but the stairs and posts are white.
Debs says...do you mean the stairs that wood look good its the side bits and posts that need striping
Edel says...How about just cleaning and waxing them? That could look good too and might work with the hand rails?
Zoe H says...It doesn't look as if it had spindles originally fro your photos, Debs. If you add spindles you will be updating/renovating the house which is different to restoring it. I'm not saying that's the wrong thing to do, and I hope you don't mind me pointing this out, but it's probably worth being clear in your mind where you're going with it from the start as some things aren't easily reversible and it is a lovely old house. Or maybe you have seen something to indicate it did have spindles?
Jan says...Agree with Edel, waxing can look really good., or painting brown as Patty suggests.
Patty W says...i like the effect without spindles, its such a complex design, think spindles might spoil it!
Jan says...The stairs will look really good restored.
