This is from standing on the stairs.
The wood was slopped on by previous paint jobs, and I colored it to make nice edges,
Been working with these people for over 15 years now.
Lots of different finishes in other areas. Fun stuff.
Don't do so much of these anymore- falling out of fashon. But I do love old houses!
Hope this gives the OP some ideas.
