We currently have large 8' spindles in our living room, but can be seen as you come into our entry way. We have a banister on the left side going up the steps and the large spindles on the right. A contractor suggested this idea about 5 years ago, but it seems to be more of a look from the 70's when we first built our house. I don't like the look now since we have just done a facelift on the rest of the house. I hate to tear it completely out since the wood is still good, but does anyone have any suggestions on how to update these spindles?
