That's the case with our staircases. They started out like this...
The carpet was removed and the treads were stained to match the new dark floors.
Pretty simple, huh? But then there was the issue of this ...
The current red oak nosing was going to be right up against the new dark maple floors. I wasn't crazy about the two tones of wood next to each other. So, we decided the nosing would be painted white. And then it seemed logical to also paint the newel posts white.
And as long as we were changing things up, I thought a sleek black handrail would look great against all that white.
Still a couple coats of paint to go, but this is how it's coming along...
I was loving the transformation of the stairs, but there was something I wasn't loving. The paint color on my kitchen walls.
Thanks to a 40% off sale at Sherwin Williams, I decided to make another change. Guess what I've been doing the past two days?? Uh huh... I've been a painting fool, and I've got pretty new walls and a hand cramp to prove it! Pictures coming soon... of the walls, not my hand.
