Staircase reveal!

January.  That's when I started scraping away at the stairs. Did it really take us four months to finish them?

I guess so.





















After months of hard work, we have this!




It's so nice to have this project finally completed! I'll bask in the accomplishment and try not to think about how these photos also highlight the fact that we still have plywood for floors, we have yet to paint the interior doors and we have a lot of trim to install throughout the house.

I dug up an old picture (taken by the realtor) that Cameron sent me when he was first considering the house. Yes, way back when we were dating, when I had no clue about what we were getting into when we made an offer!


It's hard to see in this low quality photo, but the "undesirables" included moldy, stained carpet, cracked plaster walls, a hideous yellow closet, a random cable poking out of the wall and paint splattered all over the spindles. Somehow we were able to see past it all, knowing there was potential!

  7. This is certainly a great example of perseverance! The stairs are stunning. Although I love the new stairs, I also love looking at the photos of the old, vintage busted up ones too. Thanks for sharing all the step by step photos.
