Should I strip/refinish or replace banister?
We live in a 1920's farmhouse. I believe this banister is original to the house as we found a piece of the banister used for lumber in our ceiling joists after doing some remodeling recently.
There appears to be 4+ coats of paint. I've never stripped paint before, but thought this might make a good little pet project. We are replacing the carpet and floors next month, so now is the time.
Is it worth the work? Or, should I replace it? Or... should I put another coat of paint on it and forget the whole thing??
Here are some pics:
