The gold house is now white because of the primer

From the back, notice the tree bushes are gone from the garden too.

the old stair balisters

These ballisters and nuells were enclosed in plywood, the top decorations of the nuells were sliced off :(

The original color of the stairs appear to be stained and varnished the same color as the door trim

Then it looks like they got painted black, the center rings were probably gold paint

They tried to strip the finish

The previous owners went to a lot of trouble trying to strip the black paint off,
but must of decided it was too much trouble.

Rich picked up the top balls for the nuells yesterday at an antique store.
