Project Sneak Peek, The Stairs Are Done!!!

Good morning,

One of the biggest anticipations for my current bachelor project has been updating the stair case to a new and improved and dare I say BAD A$$ glass paneled stair case?! I couldn't be happier with the results. Sometime you have to look at these details when updating a modernizing a space, and if budget allows a change like this will transform the entire space.

Take a sneak peek at the stairs with the newly installed glass panels.

Now take a look at where we started with the stairs in the beginning of the project before the paint and new wood floors came in:

Here are the stairs in progress with the new paint, the new wood floors and also with the interior walls removed.

Finally, here are the new stairs the glass panels:

The stairs are beyond amazing, and when everything is touched up and finished will absolutely complete and tie this space together. I went with a mix of the stainless steel brackets, and mixed that with a dark brown/grew powder coated finish for the rails themselves. This helped keep things modern but still warm and also blended the new stairs with our exposed beams and door frames.

I have a large custom chandelier coming in the end of this week which will be visible upstairs especially with the new glass panels. I just love how the glass just opens up the home even more and keeps things light and crisp.

These stairs went from traditional and dated, to modern and are now a show case for this home. Job well done!!

I wanted to show you one more mini transformation that made a huge impact. The door that you see in the last image went from this.

To This:

This made a huge impact to the space, and was done by simply removing the white panels from the glass and painting the metal frame with a metal paint which was applied with a paint gun. That white door is an eye sore no more;)

I plan to share more with you this week such as the 3 newly completed bathrooms. I also have additional shipments coming in so the fun should begin. Can't wait!

By the way, Happy Monday!!!
