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.
