So I finally am having my stairs replaced and decided on no "shoes" on the bottom of the balusters. Well, the workmen thought there'd be shoes so they drilled holes that are bigger than the baluster. They're trying to convince me to add a shoe, but I like it better plain. I know this is a matter of style, but need input from fellow Houzzers!
They are here right now. My decision was to tell them to please try and fix it (filling the holes, sanding, staining and re-drilling). Below are pics, what do you think? I feel badly having them fix it but it wasn't what I really wanted.
