I'm finally able to update! Yea! I apologize for taking so long. Jim has been working on a post about his newel posts, but he is taking forever with it, so I'm going to go ahead and post some pictures of the installation.
The Shoe Rail
1/2 Newel Post Up with 1 Side of Balustrade
We don't have blueprints for the house; so instead, we placed a blue note and a 2011 nickel in the newel post.
Happy Birthday to me!
The upstairs hallway is probably starting to look more like it used to prior to the 1960's.
Jim will hopefully finish his post about the installation one of these days.
