This, dear reader, is how the Animator and I filled the four days of Easter: with sanding, undercoating, more sanding, applying the first coat, more sodding sanding and then the final coat of paint.

I am sore, tired and have a blister the size of a 20 cent piece on the third finger of my right hand (paintbrush placement). But we're both happy with the final result so guess it was worth it (to be fair, we also found time for other pursuits like writing work (me), dog walks, chocolate guzzling and the ever wonderful House of Cards).

Here's the before pics - a tired, old school wooden bannister:

Carpet covered, check. Undercoat on, check.

And here we have the finished product. Not looking too shabby at all (the bannister also goes around the corner and onto the landing so this is only half of what we had to paint).
