We are never short on projects around here
So, when the weather turned cold and rainy late Friday...we simply changed plans...and worked on the kitchen and dining room.
This...is our new staircase!
priming and then sanding some more!
You might remember that the staircase was once enclosed...like a narrow, scary passageway type thing!
Hubby the carpenter opened up the wall...
Put a slight turn at the base to help it feel a little less narrow and steep
Then made the stair balusters for me.
He finished it off with the newel post that resembles our other milllwork he finished last year in the transoms!
|this was even before I painted the wall or painted the beverage center cabinets!|
Can you say Love?
I am so in love with this!
We are awaiting the insert that had to special ordered...of course!
I wanted to wait until Fall to order the two sided gas log...I have other plans for the firebox this Summer!
As I type he is working on the crown moulding!
And then we can work our way into the kitchen!
He only has two more transoms to build before he gets there!
We still have several weeks before the custom pieces will be ready to install so He spends his time wrapping up some of the other projects he has going!
It's so chilly out... so I'm actually cooking a pot of chili this afternoon! The weather has been weird again so anything warm is what I'm craving!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
I must get back to priming and sanding...ugh!
