Colors for stair rail spindles and railing

15 years ago

I'm looking for advice on punching up the banister in my entry. Currently the stairs are natural oak (I am thinking they should stay this color since that's the color of the flooring throughout the house, and I don't plan to change it all) - but the spindles and railing are a shade or two darker, which doesn't look right to me. My plan was to paint the spindles white and then use gel stain to take the railing darker (maybe to walnut) - what do you think?
