I chose baubles in three colours - clear, green and gold and in three different sizes. I added some ribbon to each and tied it onto the banister.
Then I realised what a poor state my banister was in. No amount of cleaning would make it look better. So in my wisdom I decided to repaint my staircase banister one week before Christmas. To give you a little perspective - that's 7 large posts with ball tops and 50 banister posts - all with 4 sides and bevelled edges (so 8 sides each). and the hand rail. All of this had to be sanded, primed, and then 2 coats of gloss paint.
So finally I can photograph the baubles hanging on my stairs (you can see my reflection in the baubles).
Now it's time to relax and enjoy the holidays.
