As many of you know, we are in a split level. Six stairs up,six stairs down. These are our stairs to the second floor. I waned to share our refinished stairs with you.
The previous owners had primed them, as well as the rest of the house’s original wood (due to some supposedly wayward cats.). There was some hardwood in our first level, but not enough to go through the entire first floor, and very pet damaged, so we had to replace it with the red oak. I really wish it would have been refinish-able. Noticing that the ends of the stairs had a turned edge,and hoping they were a really wood, we decided to take a chance at the cost of $20 a stair to see if they were salvageable.
After th sanding we found out they were a beautiful oak that matched the floor and in really good shape except for one ding in the wood. But who cares, we felt like we had won the lotto! We were very lucky that there really wasn’t any damage to the treads, or cat pee stains. #Winners.
I feel like I’ve moved into a new house. Not because of the newness, but there is still so much unpacking to do! We did get a POD and that helped a lot for all of our stuff, but it goes after this week, so we really have to start moving things back to where they go.
This is how the final stairway finally ended up!
We were so happy with how the makeover went and love how the stairs look! You can see more of our renovation here.
I’ve had a lot of questions about our remodel with everything from the counter tops to the flooring and even how were contracted the job. Do you have a burning question you’d like answered? I have to admit this was our first big remodel experience so I really learned a lot. I’d like to plan on doing a post on it, so if you have anything, please ask away!
