From Gross to Glam: My Black and White Staircase Makeover


The staircase is situated square in the middle of the house – and one of the first things you see when you enter through the front door.  So it probably goes without saying that this:

…was definitely not how it was going to stay!  It took a lot of work and time (when you have everything else needing makeovers too, the stairs will sometimes be neglected for design purposes and be used for their true purpose – functionality!).  But after a few starts and stops, I finally got the staircase I’d been imagining.

BAM.  The power of paint truly knows no limits! All black and white and soooo much better than before!  Check out the posts linked below to see how it all went down in this staircase before and after project.

You also probably caught a little of my Entryway area in the background of this photo, which has also been updated! I added some wood art (that I carved myself!) and hung a giant mirror that I absolutely LOVE.

Also, this hallway leads right to my kitchen. If you haven’t seen that makeover yet, continue with the tour by hitting up my Kitchen page!
