There's a pretty small hallway and I would like to make it a bit more visually spacious by trying to convert the regular solid railing into a banister one. I'm looking into reusing as much material as possible. (E.g. the tread could become a 'base' for the banister.)
Is there something I should be aware of before disassembling the existing one? Are there any gotchas about installing banister railings?
It's about 40''x40''
