Updating a split entry 1 on 1sex cams for free
I officially finished it yesterday and couldn’t wait to share it… I can’t believe how big of a difference such a small space makes now that it’s all DONE and functional and beautiful. We also tore off the carpet on the stairs to put wooden stair caps on.Living in a cathedral entry (split level entry), we see this entry from our kitchen and our living room. If you are curious, you can totally check out our whole home before photos right here. BUT they were a strange rise and the caps wouldn’t work (we tried a few kinds) SO we tore out the stringers too and rebuilt the stairs.We chose to stain the oak treads to match our hardwood floors and to use a high quality plywood painted white for the rise.I really love the white/ wood look which influenced the new hand railing when we finally did that this year! I know that I took pictures but it’s been like two years since we did them so I’m just not that interested in/excitable about them any more but can do a post if that would be helpful for you!We have pendants with Edison bulbs in our kitchen (right at the top of the stairs) so I love that they are featured here too for continuity.BUT the bulbs we picked up from home depot have this champagne kind of coating that make the light really yellow.
Like everything, we worked on it in stages until recently when we decided it was our priority to finish off. You can see we’ve done EVERYTHING from new tile, wooden stairs, hand rails, shoe storage drawers, new door and window, light… The hardest part was that these old walls were pretty warped and we had to cut each stair cap (tread) at different angles.
The other major concern in this space was the hand rail. The spacing of spindles was so wide that our kids could sit in between them (stress a mama out! We built this wooden stair rail with materials from Home Depot and wrote a whole post about the process if you’re interested.
