Remember when wrought iron kitchen sets were in style?

We had the head knots Grandpas wrought iron table in my
secret garden in the backyard for years, one day I took a
second look at it...dragged it out, sanded it, spray painted it,
then we made a new walnut top for it, and it looks so nice,
a timeless look -- in my humble opinion.

Things go out of style, come back in, then go out of style again!
Think about it, things have to go out of style, so that people have
go out and replace things, in short order the new stuff will be
out of style...then the cycle starts again...
That' s why I never get rid of ties LOLOLOLOL

Yes, hang on to everything, never throw those ties away!.
When we moved into our house (built in
the mid-fifties) The previous owner had a stainless steel wall oven,
a stainless steel range top, and a stainless steel sink! This was original
to the house in 1955...who knew SS appliances were around since
the mid fifties!?!
The first thing we did was to
rip out the cold, and ugly stainless wall oven, range top, and sink, and replaced
it with copper tone appliances and sink...hahaha...Even then, I was so smart,
to realize, who would ever want a cold, ugly SS in a kitchen, when copper tone ruled!

Then down the road we put in a new white
kitchen, and replaced everything with almond appliances. " Almond'" I said,
"it's so bright and cheerful, I'll love it forever!"

Then ' Back To The Future' six years ago, we put in another
new kitchen and, yup...and yup, we put in all that cold and ugly,
Stainless Steel appliances! The head knot said, "didn't we use
to have Stainless years ago!?!....So, there ya go, we went full cycle!

That's why I don't want to stain my floors when I refinish them, sometimes less is more. I don't think you can go wrong with a wood handrail and balusters.

I want to sincerely thank everyone that has contributed to this post, I have learned so much from you.

Once I finish some other renovations I will tackle my stair project.
