Stairs After

I did find a "before" picture, after all. Boy, do I not miss that ugly old carpet. So, here's what the stairs look like now, painted and refinished:

I wonder what else I can get to on my punch list this summer. I know I need to finish the banister and newel post - waiting for a day that I don't mind the stink as much, probably. I do need to do something about that bathroom upstairs. I think I'm going to have to face reality and just pull down some of those tiles [insert very sad face here] and redo the corner as it was supposed to be done in the first place. I'm really not motivated to demo even a few of my beautiful tiles so maybe I will need a few drinks in me to work up the courage first.

The stairway looks great. And congrats to your Mom!

We did that to our stairs as well -- amazingly in good shape! It's much easier to sweep than to vacuum!

Love the way the stairs came out. My wife and I are purchasing a 1910 foursquare and it's all original. Getting inspired by checking out your blog.
