I nearly forgot

I finished the staircase in the salon. Just looking back through my blog I realized i'd not taken a photo of the stairs with the banister rail fitted. The banister rail is modeled on staircases of the period. So here it is:

The rail is hand made with an old wooden molding plane Julia bought me from a brocante. The spindles are cut from some wood I got for friends about 3 years ago. They never used the wood and then gave it me back when they moved house. I then stored the wood in the roof of the barn for a further 2 years. I was scratching round the barn looking for something to make spindles out of.....then I looked voila!
