Painted Stairs and Doors

stairs4

When you walk in the front door of our house there is a staircase  immediately in front of you.  Lots of oak huh? Never bothered me for a second.  During our first showing all I saw was beautiful wood that could be painted.  Of course I did!  That is how I think….I imagine everything with paint on it.  The stair case is beautiful!  The design is perfect! I loved that the spindles were wood.  In my last house they were black iron and I was getting a little tired of it. Black Iron is nice, but not “changeable”.

 I like changeable elements.

Good classic bones go a long, long way!

It turned out exactly how I imagined it would!

A black handrail and white everywhere else!

We also painted the front door (previously white) and all the doors off the hallway black!

The walls are Sherwin Williams Repose Gray.

I’m continuing the black doors into the kitchen.  Today I was able to get the first coat on these two doors.  I’m using oil based paint and I’m HATING using the oil paint!  The doors were previously painted in white oil, so I had no choice but to go over oil with oil.  But, I know for lasting durability it is the right choice.  The smell is killing me and I’m so impatient with the dry time! Not to mention I’m a messy girl when it comes to painting and I’m covered in it.  Pretty sure I’ll just throw the brush away when I’m done too!

    Take a trip to your local crafts or art supply store and browse through the available scrapbooks.

    Remember the price will reflect how much work the rental company has to do to
    set the unit up for you, how frequently it needs to be serviced, the amenities
    that you require, and the length of time you will need the rental.
    Smaller scale leasehold improvements, or remodeling of an existing restaurant will keep the cost on the lower end.

    Love the black doors. You have great ideas to improve some of the smallest spaces. Thanks for sharing.
