A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Stair progress report number 857

Stair progress report number 857

The landing. This is where I put the pine planks. Oh my....I was so nervous about this part. But about 8 pm during Grey's Anatomy, I just went for it.

I put roofing felt down on the landing to prevent the boards from squeaking too much when they expand and contract and when you walk on them.
 (Free roofing felt!)

Then I put the boards down.

My first coat of stain freaked me out a bit because it wasn't as dark as it was on the steps. But, after the dry brushed brown paint and another coat of stain, it looked perfect.

And here it is after the poly.

Stay tuned for the dramatic conclusion!

wow, I am so impressed, I love it!!! I have been wanting wood stairs for so long but the price is way too high for the bullnose. I've been thinking of painting them, you have me really inspired! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, thanks for your kind comments on the desk!
