Those of you who frequently work on projects in your home know how daunting things can get.
The list of things needing to be done never ends.
Every time I walked into our house and looked ahead at the first floor stair banister, it revolted me. It needed painting so badly.
The front entry hall of a home is very important. Anything shabby looking has to go and that banister qualified.
With a house guest about to arrive, I went out and bought a product that assured me would be suitable for using on the stair banisters.
It took me about an hour and a half on a stifling New England summer day to do the deed.
The posts at the bottom of two flights of stairs and the banisters that lead up all look great now.
Here came the problem: in the sticky, humid weather, the banisters did not dry quickly.
I ran a fan but ultimately had to tell a house guest not to use the banisters when going up to the second floor.
It's now the evening of day two and they are still slightly sticky to the touch.
Maybe by fall they will dry. ha! They look great though!
I'm glad they no longer look shabby.
