Here is a link to the blog post describing the hell that is sanding and staining a staircase.
So two befores of our lovely 70’s stairs…
And that bizarre chandelier which has since shattered into at least 7 million pieces.
Also note the lovely laminate accenting pale oak wood.
Oh and the valences.
We sanded, stained, cried, drank and meowed our way to the final product.
Now I need to find someone who cleans mirrors and floors. By the looks of these pictures, apparently I’m not terribly good at it. Unfortunately for me that means I’ll have to stick with staining.
But on a positive note, after six weeks I think it’s almost out of my hair.
