quick facelift

we gave the top of the landing a makeover recently...


Here is where it was before...


and even before that...


First things we did was rip up the disgusting carpeting...






it was really hard to find wood that already matched the steps, but we did as best as we could. By we i of course mean Mr H.




i was obsessed with the planking we did above the fire place, i wanted to do it somewhere else.  This area was little and cheap.

I also wanted to redo the ugly air vent.  i picked up a sheet of this metal stuff (technical term) at home depot and Mr H cut and framed wood around it.  Since the air vent has to be accessible, he used industrial strength velcro and just stuck it right on there. that mans a genius sometimes...


not a bad little makeover...
