When we did our kitchen remodel, the big question was “where do we stop?” One thing I knew was I really wanted to pull the 14 year-old carpet off our stairs and refinish them.
We were lucky that there were oak treads already underneath. We did stop at the top step though and just turn the carpet under. It was a hard decision, but with doing the top tread it was like, “then do we do the hallway..? then do we do then bedrooms..?” We had to draw the line some where for now. It’s too easy though to let one project bleed over into the next when you are remodeling.
We had them stained to match our floors. I had been dying forever to do chair rail up the sides and I finally was able to get one side done this weekend.
I knew it was the perfect spot to hang my girl’s pictures.
And I am trying to decide now if I am going to do either beadedboard or board and batten up the side.
It took me a bit (of swearing) and wrestling to figure out the angle cut. Though like my father-in-law says, “putty and paint make me the carpenter I ain’t.”
I hung part of my vintage pocket watch collection. I love these and you can find them do affordably on Ebay.
I am so glad I have one more thing to finally mark off my list.
