Staircase Renovation is Complete! (almost)

Remember when I said I was a Cheater?  Well, the staircase is finally finished and we love it!  We still need to pick out a carpet runner, but that might not happen for a long time because I am being really indecisive about it.

(Find all the BEFORE pictures in this post HERE)

The banisters were stained a really nice deep, rich color and the spindles were painted white, just like the stairs.  It has completely brightened and transformed our foyer and stairwell.  Love!  Paint is the best thing ever!

Here is a BEFORE picture (with carpet ripped up)

LOVE!

View from upstairs, and I will be showing off the new flooring soon! (after we finish off the trim work)

So, doesn’t paint make a HUGE difference!?  Love it!

    I love it! I know how you feel.. I did the exact same renovation.. and the loss of the gross oak is like you live in a whole new house.

    Here is my makeover: http://www.themoney-pit.com/2012/01/stair-makeover-reveal-and-tutorial.html I like your white stairs though.. I may still paint the risers!

    Nice job!

    AMAZING!!! The staircase looks much brighter and cuter after a coat of white colored paint. Thank you for sharing the photos. You already did a great work by your own “DIY” style.
