Stair Railing Remodel

2 materials
1 Week
We needed to update our dated and dangerous stair rail, especially with two young children. The way it transformed our entire house is remarkable and worth every penny. Here's how we did it.
The railing was original from when the house was built in 1979.
It was wobbly and the opening between the balusters was wide enough to be dangerous with two young children.
The lighting had been updated at some point but was still not our style.
We decided to give it our own look. And here is the finished product.
The square balusters and darker stain to match our floors make this traditional wood railing feel modern without being trendy.
We replaced the flush mount light at the top of the stairs with fixture from Home Depot.
Not only is the railing now safe, it makes the entire house feel warm.
New four light chandelier from Joss and Main.
New entry fixture from Joss and Main. Hope you enjoyed watching our makeover!
