In need of a few good friends to hold my hand & help with entry
Being sick to death with oak, I really am ready to make a drastic change. Please help me figure this out. If I can get this entry way looking more like us, I think it will be a good start to getting the ball rolling as far as decorating the rest of the house.
And here are my stairs.
And another view...
If I painted the risers and spindles, stained darker the steps, railings, newel posts, and the skirt board on the wall...does this mean I have to paint all my trim white as well? Like I said, I rather would have to stain the trim all darker, maybe match the steps?
And here is the front door which needs staining also. It is opposite of the stairs.
Stairs that I adore...
And here, on the other side of the stairs is the DR.
See, I told you there was a lot of honey oak. All this trim needs updating. Don't worry, this hideous chandy is coming down any day as soon as new fixture arrives.
Also, we do plan on replacing the flooring with wood in a few years. Have not painted walls other than DR since I wanted to work on the wood before hand.
I really would appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.
