My SIL has his own thoughts on this...OMG NO!!!!! but there you have it...I did it! After years of looking at an ugly railing I finally got the nerve to paint it a beautiful colour by Behr Ultra...Espresso Beans. I love the colour so much I carried it into the main bathroom and painted the vanity. The contrast with the gold walls makes the room seem so much wider.
I have to highly recommend the new line of Behr paint available @ The Home Depot...well worth the extra money...prime and paint at the same time...great when using rich colours or going over a dark colour.
