In this 5 step stair railing design project we transformed an old style railing into this amazing one of a kind BENT Iron Railing with distressed wood finish.
When the client contacted me to go to their home and take a look at their stair railing that they wanted to transform I arrived to find their old railing had golden oak handrail and base and white balusters. Here is what the railings looked like before the stair railing design project began.
STEP 1 – we removed the white balusters and pulled out all the nails that held them in place so we had a flat surface to attach the metal railing.
STEP 2 – was a longer process of stripping the finish off of the oak handrail and base down to the bare wood. Using a gel to strip the clear coat off of the wood I painted the gel on and let it sit for a while before taking it off to make the sanding process easier. Once all the wood was stripped using the gel then all the wood was sanded down to a smooth surface.
STEP 3 – I custom fit and created my BENT iron railing design. The iron was powder coated in a oil rubbed bronze finish which gives a elegant texture to the iron work.
STEP 4 – My BENT Iron Art Railing was installed into the spaces between the handrail and base and attached simply with screws top and bottom. This gives a clean look and the strength needed for stair railing design.
The bare wood was stained in a Jacobean color creating a darker distressed look creating the finished look as seen in the images below.
