Devil is in the Details

The individual who painted everything in our house brown should really buy me a drink when this is all through.

I abandoned this project about a year ago and now that I have some free time on my hands, decided to dive back in to ridding the banister of layers and layers of brown paint in order to set the beautiful wood beneath it free.
