There are lots of bits and pieces we have had to change for safety specifications. When we heard we needed a 2nd railing, we were wary to change the beautiful wood staircase but man, check out the new bannister that matches perfectly with the current wood color. Again, it's the little things.
Update: We are painting like maniacs in order to have as much done before next Tuesday when we are having ALL the floors refinished. There is SO MUCH WHITE TRIM TO BE PAINTED but it is worth the extra work and time because it looks so crisp and finished. Hopefully I will have some pictures of Room 1 and Bathroom 1 tomorrow as we are finishing those up.
