Ideas on how to update wrought iron stair railing?

We just moved into a split level home and most of the house has been updated except for the stair railing. Do you have any suggestions on how to update this outdated railing without replacing it? Thank you.

If you are going to have children in your house you might want to also attach acrylic panels to the sides of the wrought iron since the openings are not to code and a child could slip through and fall........

You could paint the railing a different color, but it is difficult to know what will go with your decor.

I like the idea of a bronze.

Another option is to paint it a faux copper (the aged green patina that copper gets over time)

Sorry, replace it. If the area shown in your picture is all you have we would put up wood newels and iron balusters for around $1500. Only thing you would have to do is stain wood railing and wood newels.

Go to a metal fabricating shop, looks easy enough to replace, this railing is not up to code.
