How we spent spring break 2010


The steps in our 1900 farmhouse were incredibly steep and narrow so it was one of the first major projects we tackled. With plenty of help from friends and family, it became a beautiful set of steps, complete with barn wood rails, a chandelier in the stairwell and eventually, carpet.
Can you say, "Steep?"

    Ha, ha. Sometimes a little beer along with the food helps them work even better.

    @Rachael: nice project; beautiful wood - why not stain the stairs instead of carpeting? You can never have enough wood!
