staircase redo

10 Feb

From when we bought our house, I have been itching to pull that hideous green 1980’s carpet off of the stairs and completely redo them! Finally we had that chance and boy do they look different! The carpet was pulled up and all of the nails and tacks removed. The old handrail was wobbly and was also torn out. The treads themselves were in great condition and were a really nice oak, so we decided to stain them a warm gray. Then, we tiled the risers with a mottled turquoise penny round tile from Love the final result!

The hideous before and during. Note the Krispy Kreme used to bribe the workers.022014update_0016


The treads look a lot more green in the photo than in real life.
