(In case you haven't noticed, I've been on a bit of a song-title-for-my-blog-posts kick this week.)
Would ya look at this Before and After?!
Talk about inspiration.
The picture on the left shows the formal stairs in my daughter's home as they appeared when her family moved into the house two years ago. Pretty, sweeping stairs in a huge, elegant yet homey entry. White rails, banister, and carpet. (Did I mention that she has four boys?)
Very pretty, but they knew they wanted the wood on the stairs exposed and a carpet runner from day one...however, as I mentioned just now, they have four boys..so it took a while to get this project completed, between little league, birthday celebrations, soccer, and life in general. They completed this project yesterday.
I'd say it was well worth the wait, wouldn't you?
