Opinions, Please!


Hey Ladies!!  I had something else planned for today, but yesterday this was on my mind ALL DAY LONG.  I thought who better to ask and get opinions from than all my blog friends?  I need your help today!  As you know in the new house, we moved in partly (we were living upstairs for the first week because all the downstairs was getting new floors and being painted).  This week the floor guys are finishing up the downstairs flooring and we’re having to decide on the staircase.  EEK!  My mind is all over the place!  So, I need your help!

We’re not staying there this week, so I couldn’t just snap a picture.  This is the best I got!  Look at the bottom right picture.  Check out the staircase.  We’re putting hardwood floors on the stairs, but our dilemma is what to do with the spindles.  I actually like the white spindles, but I’ve been told that if we try to remove the current ones and reuse them-odds are they’ll break.  Now, I’m thinking new spindles.  If we’re going to get new spindles, I have no clue what I like.  I think they’re kind of like outside light fixtures.  I think overall they look good, but I’d never notice a particular spindle in someone’s house.  Does that make sense?  This is where you come in.  I searched Pinterest and found a couple options that I really liked.  I need you to vote.  Which look do you think looks best?

Keep in mind our floors will look like this…


Our walls are Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams.  They look like this…
(This isn’t our house, but I found the image on Google.)  We also have white trim/baseboards. 

Here we go…
Choice #1
This option has a very ornate piece every five or so spindles.

Choice #2
This choice is a little more subtle with patterned spindles every three spindles.

Choice #3
This option would be getting new white spindles.

Thanks so much for your help, ladies!!  I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
