Black painted railings can update oak railings

Now I can't say that the below photos that I found online have oak or a wood that the homeowner did not like, but  in my old house I did just that...  I painted my oak railing black and I loved it!  What a quick fix to updating a staircase. Making sure to use a quality primer (I had mine tinted black) then I used a paint that can take the high traffic and I was good to go! 5 years later it was still looking great.  Would you like more design inspiration?  Don't forget to check out my design and lifestyle web site New England Fine Living
