I spent the weekend redoing my stairs!  Don’t they look great?  Ha, I wish.  These are not my stairs, rather, they belong to Better After reader Anne.  Anne is a bit of a rockstar and did all of this herself with a circular saw!
I would totally do this myself too, if a) I didn’t have carpeted stairs, and b) I was confident with a saw. I’m actually quite horrified of saws these days, thanks to a story my uncle just told me about his woodworker brother, but I won’t repeat it here in case you are eating breakfast.  But it’s gross.  Email me if you really want to know.  However, Anne survived, fingers intact, and her staircase looks great!  Thanks Anne!

    Està molt encertat, el color blanc amb el contrast de la fusta queda preciós.

    This is beautiful! I wish that she had a blog because I would love to ask her how they get furniture upstairs. We’re building a similar floorplan and I am terrifired that nothing will fit to get up to the 2nd floor! (if you find out, please let me know!!)
