Banister Banishment

Banister Banishment

The first thing anyone saw when they walked into Anna Rose’s home was this angry maroon wall glaring out at them from behind the banister’s grimace.

Do you see it too?


Yikesicles!  Not the most welcoming of welcomes.  Anna Rose couldn’t wait to change it up, and started with a light gray paint for the wall, and finished by ditching the honey-oak completely for a custom built banister that wants to wrap you in a loving embrace with its strong and sturdy arms.  I … could possibly be reading a bit too much into this.

    Painted wood makes me happy! Plus the clean lines, sending the spindly crap back to Grandma’s house! Beautiful!

    Love it! Isn’t it interesting how everyone was diving head first into the red tones not too long ago (including me, had a full red living room) – and while it was fun, it can be a lot to look at. I bet the room looks SO much bigger now! I wonder what color we’ll dive into in the next five years?

    That red wall really was awful! I love the graphic eyes you added! Hahaha! Thanks for the feature 🙂

    Love the banister. Looks so similar to the one my grandfather built in the 1930’s in their home. I have such good memories every time I see a something that reminds me of my grandparents and their house. Glad that angry red wall is gone too. What a difference.
