We're building a house and our painter stained our bannister significantly darker than the hardwood flooring we picked out.
I don't want to be a pain-in-the-butt to the painter but I do want a bannister we'll be happy with. Thoughts?

If this was discussed prior to the project and the painted told you he sould match it perfectly then he/she would be at fault. If he mentioned getting it close, but didn't promise anything, then it's not his/her fault. Either way banisters really don't cost too much. You could probably get a new one for $50-$100.
If, the job description is to match the floors. Your painter is at fault, you have a right to have him to rework the job to correct the problem.
Otherwise, you'll have to pay him extra labor cost to refinish the bannister and re-stain it.
There is no such thing as being a pain in the butt. If, it's not what you want, you should have it corrected.
staining can only go one way and it's not lighter, not much can be done
