Refinished Stairwell Reveal

Happy Monday friends. It was finally nice enough out for some patio time here in Minneapolis, so I couldn't be in a better mood for the beginning of the week.

For any of you here for The DIY'ers - the party is moving to Tuesday's. We have three other awesome bloggers on board so everyone come back tomorrow for a real party!

Today we're here to share the reveal to our stairwell renovation. Check out this beautiful thing.

This stairwell has come a long way in the last few months. I didn't get a before photo (oops!) but this photo of me sanding down the old handrail will have to suffice.

Stairwell Before & After

A couple of weeks ago, we shared the two big projects that went into this renovation: how to install stair treads & risers and how to build a custom newel post. And today we're sharing the final reveal. It's all painted and stained. The bannisters are in and the newel post caps are on.

I didn't get any photos of Justin installing the bannisters & hand rail because he surprised me with it on a rainy day when I wasn't home. But check out how good they turned out!

Here are a couple of other final photos. The last thing we have left is installing our stair runner that we purchased with the advice from all of you! We chose runner #1 from this post back in March.

We're checking things off our remodel to-do list left and right, and we're almost completely done. What?! Just in time for summer. Heck yeah.
