Do you know what newels are? They are the upright posts that form the balustrade backbone on a stair railing. The one at the bottom of the stairs is called the starting newel and is usually topped with a decorative finial, something to finish it off.
I wasn't really in the market for new newels. I was content with the ones that I had.
But I got an upgrade anyway.
One finial in this color …
… And another one in THIS color …
Makes a stunning statement, no?
Every day after a game, Ben comes in, balances his gloves on the newel posts, and heads to the garage with the other gear. As he passes back through on the way upstairs to shower, he grabs a glove in each hand and my 'new newels' become the 'old design' again.
