What wood you do?

What wood you do?
Even the President of the Wood Paneling Fan Club, the most wood-loving-est wood-purist alive, fervent  protector of all things woody, would look at this before staircase and be like “Holy frank n’ beans, that’s too much wood.”

And what’s worse, Janine tells us that this was all bare pine!  No stain, no varnish, no varathane, no nothin’, except lots of hydrogen peroxide and tweezers, I presume.  Looks so much better now!  Thanks for sharing Janine!

    Great transformation. It’s amazing what a little chocolate paint can do. (Or even a little chocolate.)

    Major improvement! The “before” would be cool in a cabin of sorts, but the “after” is classy and chic- and totally HOME-worthy! Love, love, love it! Great work!

    This proves once again “Just cuz it’s wood doesn’t mean it’s good!” Wow! What a cool transformation!
