Since my husband vetoed my idea of staining our wood floors darker, I figured I had to take matters into my own hands. A little spruce up is definitely needed. Therefore, I am venturing to paint my bannister a dark black-brown myself. Now I know that when I get about half way through I am going to ask myself "what were you thinking" but this project is going to be my pre-thanksgiving update. FYI, I did try the "new floor color would be a great 'pre-Thanksgiving spruce-up'" idea on my husband....no dice.

My only concern is how it will look with my old basic-oak-80's floor color. I have also promised myself that i WILL take the time to properly prep the wood for painting (stripping, cleaning, sanding.) That's never been my strong suit as I just want to get to the painting!!!
