Juyle, The luxo lamp is cool, looks great in that room. Stephen, I started prepping for paint yesterday. Starting with my stairwell to the basement because it really needed help. I'm doing walnut plywood for the landing and risers, then solid walnut for the stair treads and nosing. Replacing the molding with slightly taller rectangular molding and hanging an undetermined lamp. The color is white in eggshell, and if all goes well the white will likely consume the remainder of the walls in the house.
