I stripped and sanded the 400 layers of white paint off my handrail and spindels. I am going for a contemporary spanish look, and really wanted to replace the whole thing with iron, but just can't spend $700 right now for it. So instead, I thought I'd see if a coat of paint could spruce it up a bit. So far I painted the handrail flat off black, but I'm torn on the spindels. I'm leaning towards black, but my husband thinks white would be better. I think white might look a little too colonial, but what do you guys think???
Some side notes about the rest of the house: all the walls and trim are white. All hardware is ORB. The grey slate tile is only in that entryway and kitchen and the rest of the flooring is the laminate seen in the photo. We have tried to draw in color through artwork.
