Banister Do-over

How the banister went from DRAB to FAB...for a few bucks...
Here's what the banister DID look like....This WAS NOT DOING IT FOR ME...



After a visit to the Dollar Tree and BIG LOTS!!!  She has more sustenance.  And, if you're just now getting here...THIS IS THE REASON I'M LIKE THE 500TH ENTRY ON BANISTERS....Woke up at the usual 5:30...already depressed because yesterday I ran over to DIY By Design...and there were like 250 entries already for the banister...crap!!!!  So...anyway.  After ranting and raving about how "nice" it would be to be a SAHM so I could blog during the day....I finally chilled out (all it took was a hug from the Monsters...life is good).  I CAN'T be a SAHM.  I don't have it in me.  I admire you!  I'd go nuts and need to be institutionalized.  I'm not trying to offend anyone here, I'm just saying it takes a special personality to be a SAHM...and my personality is the opposite.  I love my Monsters, don't get me wrong...but my mom watches them, and my husband only typically works three FULL days a week...so I know they're in good hands.  Ok, moving on.  I went up the ugly pretty little stairs to jump on the Mac...and to my surprise, all my followers are gone...AWESOMENESS!  This may not seem like a huge deal to you, but I'm new here....and I still get stoked when I have a new comment, nonetheless a new FOLLOWER....HELLO!?!?  So, I got wrapped up in that, so pics weren't ready.  THEN I had the 9-5ing to do...so here we are...in the 500's! (Actually, I'm in the 70's) AWESOMENESS!  I'll give the details on what I did, how I did it and what you SHOULD NOT DO, BUT NOT UNTIL THE 14TH (guest post/feature on The Artsy Girl Connection)  So, here is the banister...*Disclaimer....These photos are NOT my best editing work.  Here's.........................FAB!!!

















And one for fun....
