The old treads with filled baluster holes- never quite worked out how Kyle hoped
Buh bye, old stair treads.
Welcome, new treads and newel post!
Kyle put the edging on the stairs, stained, and added the first coat of poly.
Caution: wet stain. We have perfected the art of climing up to the top of the ladder and jumping to the landing to get upstairs.
Tonight he plans on drilling the holes for the new balusters, and sanding that nasty old trim on the wall. A former resident of the house had painted right over stained wood, so the old white paint is peeling off.
In other news, we finally received the correct thermostat for our heated tile floor in the upstairs bathroom. It is AWESOME! So nice to get up in the morning and walk onto a toasty warm floor. Thanks, Kyle for having that great idea and making it work! Thanks, also, for re-grouting the tiles where I spilled red nail polish a few weeks ago, and letting me off with just one warning never to do it again. That is why I love you.
