PROGRESS UPDATE: SWITCHING OUT THE OLD FOR THE NEW

June 16, 2014

There is a lot that goes into remodeling.  The big projects, like the kitchen or the family room, are well, big.  But the smaller items add up and add up until they too feel big and difficult to tackle.

We are almost finished with both the family room and the master bathroom (hooray!) and it has been more than a little disruptive.  I’m excited to share them with you soon, as well as the kitchen reveal.  And while we tie up the loose ends on those rooms, we’ve begun chipping away at a seemingly endless list of smaller yet daunting items.  Switching out door handles, hinges, window treatments, On that list was switching out the moulding detail on the stairs.

The stairs make a big impact in our home.  They are one of the first things you see when you walk through the front door.  Our ceilings are quite high, so they are a focal point in the center of the home.

I like the idea of them, and while they aren’t spectacular in design, they are far from terrible.  But I felt they could be improved upon a bit, without tearing out the entire structure and starting fresh.

The stairs had some moulding on the railings, bases, and on the top.  The moulding was just simple inexpensive baseboard/trim that had been flipped upside down.  Odd for sure, and dated.  It had to go.

It took some work, but we tore out all of the moulding, baseboards, and the moulding on the railings.  It was messy and most un-fun.  And putting it back together will likely be the same, but I think those small details make a big difference.  I want the home to feel completely transformed– not 88% there.

Speaking of 88% there….. I would say we are 88% finished with the master bathroom.  Watch for some details soon!   And wow, what a big change this room has gone through!

As always, as we say in teevee, stay tuned…
