Urgent help needed!

betsy46February 23, 2013
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.

One other thing-- do people like all the posts to have the same "top" or do you like when the bigger on at the bottom of the stairs has a little "roof" top?

if you 'll leave these holes bigger even with the repares - eventually it 'll start to bug you, i would have the "shoes" putting on and wouldn't worry about the post :)))

Thanks for responding. I'm having them fix it and also leave shoes (since I paid for them!). Will see how it looks!

It will look more Finished ( and since you don't have modern design - it will blend in with the rest of the house):)))

HI -- All I can say is if this was for me , I would go for the no collars and a plain post - no molding or top hat . All easier to clean etc. Then that would be a more modern look .

I was agreeing with the shoes as the repair would be fully covered, but if the repair is done well, I agree it is more attractive without the "shoes".
