So, last week something pretty exciting happened. . . well, exciting for me anyway. For the past 6 months, we have been using a ladder to get to our bathroom (which sits 4 feet up from the main floor). That meant that late night or early morning bathroom breaks involved me crawling up 3or 4 steps while I was half awake. Luckily, no injures occurred and we finally got around to getting some stairs installed!
Let's take a look at the before and after. . .
What do you think? Our stairs are made from hot rolled steel. I wanted something different than the average looking wooden tread stairs and we thought this bent steel number would be right up our alley!
I love the modern feel of the stairs and how they are open underneath. Some mamas out there may be concerned since there are no handrails, but we aren't worried since we have no children.
You can see that we still have to fix the air vent. That should be finished soon!
We've actually been doing lots of "functional" work around here lately. This is very exciting because it means life is getting easier and we are getting closer to the part I love- making everything pretty! But really, it is nice to skip up some stairs (rather than scale a ladder) when I need to take a shower or brush my teeth! Wooo hoooo! :)
Back tomorrow with more updates! :)
