Faux Wood Paint Effect on Handrail

This project was another great example of how faux wood graining can be used as a simple, cost-effective solution when compared to the installation of the real material. To have replaced the handrail over all 4 stories with a real oak one would have cost many thousands, caused a lot of mess and disruption, and probably damaged the spindles as well. By opting for faux wood painting, the clients got the new look they wanted without the difficult logistics and hefty price tag.

This handrail was actually once mahogany but had been painted and re-painted many times. When the clients replaced the old doors with new oak ones, they felt another feature was needed to tie everything together.

The banister was a key architectural feature of the home and seemed the best way to change the over all look, top to bottom. The clients were extremely happy with he results and how I had undertaken the work, and were kind enough to write this  Google Review for me –

‘What can I say other than totally blown away with completed work. Lee’s attention to detail was fascinating to watch. Dedicated, tidy, neat, friendly, professional. We asked his advice as we were uncertain (& lacked knowledge!) & valued his comments which made the end results even better than we could have imagined. Our comments don’t do his work justice. Everything just looks so natural that you don’t notice it. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending Lee & in the future if we require any more work like this we would happily welcome him back.’ Tony Richardson, Berwick
