I know, I know I wrote that I would show off my staircase a few posting ago & I am sorry that I did not get it done, but fret no more, here they are in all their new glory SHINY & NEW.
But, wait let us see what they looked like before all of the BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS! Under each tread we added 1/4" molding in keeping with the other molding we have throughout the house.
And, he said sure so we took it out that very weekend, he bought all of the material except stain & paint as that is my forte so he left it to me.
Do they not look awesome? I am telling you they were a lot of work, but the reward is so worth it! My husband bought pine (top grade) for each tread and oak for the landing. He also did all of the bull nose on each pine tread. It took so long to get the stairs done because I needed to special order the bit for the bull nose, it is difficult to find a 1" bit in the big box stores.
I painted all of the risers to match the original molding along the staircase & I needed to mix 2 different stains (Minwax non-toxic, water based) to match the original oak flooring we had throughout the house. I must say this is another one of my faves. YIKES~I see a boo boo in this photo, can you spot it? It is the bottom of the table raw wood, I will need to paint this...soon!
