Stair case make over



First we removed the carpet and had hardwood    trends put on $2500.Then we repainted the rail white and removed the frame job we did when we moved in 2 years ago.

                                        A great new light.

The after effects of taking down the frame.


The wall was ripped up so we put up plywood in a larger size than before to cover up the damage.

 Then we added the chair rail on one wall in the living room and up the stairs.

         Then we painted the lower half a chocolate brown.

The $2500 for the stairs also covered the wood floor on the     landing up stairs in the hall to the bedrooms.

These are the pictures of the cuts my husband made to make the trim on the chair rail.   

                       Then we added square boxes of trim.

All done!

Here is the design we wanted. So we could make adjustment we stared in the center of the wall and us one headless nail to nail in each piece of wood. It was easy to pull off and try again if we were off measuring wise.

In this picture you can see how it is a square box of 10wide 13 tall with 7 inch pieces on all sides.
Then we added just a flat 3.5 wide 4 ft long pieces of wood also in the molding department. After everything is in place then take a nail gun and nail all the wood to the wall.
Then really months later we got around to painting it. One coat of primer and 3 coats of white paint. Then we realized that w…
