I've seen a couple wood handrails painted cant say i really liked it. Seemed alot more prone to show dirt and dings. The newel post caps always seem to be down to bare wood on the sharp edges whenever i see it painted.
You didn't mention kids involved...I would scuff the handrail up, drag it behind your truck, making large splinters that would be prone to easily come off...Those were my thoughts....toss a couple of kids into the mix, the paint won't stand a chance.
No it's a "finishing type thing" for the 2nd flr. renov. :whistling
The hole where the crapper was now has a crapper flange :thumbsup:Oh, I thought it might be for proping one's self up, while stradling the hole in the floor where the crapper was!:laughing::laughing:
In a way I am....it might keep the kids from breaking their necks on the stairs.....it's a given I'll fall down the stairs :wacko: due to stepping on a "Barbie" shoe or something.Honestly, I just thought you were being saftey conscious.:whistling
