New Stairs

When we bought our house, I knew I wanted to change the half-drywall railing into a real bannister, but unfortunately that meant having look at this unfinished project for almost a year. The old nasty carpet from the previous owners remained and no bannister. 

Once Philip had time to do this project, we found an old beat up newel post that he was able to make sturdier, but still had old character to it. We got it from an architectural salvage shop in NH for $99. I feel like that's robbery, but we had looked for a long time and that was cheap compared to most. 

I can't really tell you what Philip did. He could if you want to know, but here is our new old newel post and beautiful stair treads and bannister...


Still a lot to do, but check one thing off the list!
