We kept the carpet like I promised (someday it will go bye bye, but this is not that day) as well as the handrail and all the trim and woodworking. The handrail got a good scrubbing and the woodwork was just primed and painted. We replaced the hardware on the handrail, the light fixture up there above the steps, and added a curtain rod and drapes to the window. Honestly we've been done for several weeks but I kept wanting to add some artwork or a gallery wall to the left of the window before I took these pics. And then finally I was like "oy! Time is a wastin'!" and so here I am.
Do you love that I removed the door and the half-wall from the bottom of the stairs and painted all the downstairs trim white to match the upstairs? Do you? Because doesn't it look amaze-wong??? Sigh. I'm so happy I bit the bullet and just did it.
