Replacement stairs


Since I wasn't able to use the fancy wraparound stairs I wanted, I had to figure out a way to make a Houseworks straight, narrow staircase look interesting and perhaps a bit spooky. I took a page from the Newport book and added laser cut corners. I had to remove portions of the pieces to get them to fit together uniformly along the side of the stairs, but I think the result looks planned and natural. Since painting laser cut trims with a brush takes forever and I planned on making the whole thing black anyway, I taped the assembly to a board and sprayed it with Krylon flat black. Interestingly, flat black ended up satin black, so no added sealer was necessary. The paper is Turquoise Gothic Stripe by The Paper Studio. I think I'll use this paper in the foyer. The area behind the stairs will be in the parlor and will be the deep glittery green paper by Recollections I've posted before. I wasn't sure about having such dark stairs, but I think they'll work wonderfully.
