Stripped Banister

What I have learned recently:

Stripping latex paint from steel SUCKS. It comes off in sticky, gooey gobs and needs to be scraped off bit by bit. My simple plan to strip the banister of icky white paint turned into a 2-weekend project fraught with tears and frustration.


Also, steel is heavy.  This m-effer was a pain in the neck to work with.


But a sleek black spray paint job is much nicer than yellowing, chipping, sticky white paint applied with a brush!


Corner of my entry way. Whoops - that price tag can come off now!  Next on the docket: a runner rug!
