The Stairwell After

I know it’s been a while since you’ve seen the before photos, so here they are again.  This is the stairwell when we moved in, but after we filled the cat scratches all over the spindles.

We installed the battens and painted pretty much every surface in the stairwell except the ceiling.  Because the walls aren’t exactly square, it took 7 or 8 caulking gun tubes of DAP to fill all the cracks.

We LOVE it!  It suits the house so well and looks so great.  Our landlady finally came for a visit and couldn’t believe the difference.  She loved it too.

We still have a refinished chandelier to hang in the stairwell, and then it will be complete.  Mostly.   I’ll hopefully be able to show you the chandelier up soon.  We also have to continue the baseboards for the whole upstairs except the bathroom, at some point when the landlady wants to buy us the materials.

Next up: the kid’s room.
