Hopefully, everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! We did enjoy a little down time this past weekend (not a lot…just enough) and now we are back at it…which is why this Tuesday Tidbits is on Wednesday. The big story this week is the staircase and its progress. While it will still  take another couple of weeks, the staircase is coming along exactly as we had hoped. Solid hickory was definitely the right choice for both the floors and the stairs.

The skirt board and aprons turned out amazing (they are super tall on the wall side and I love it)!

The treads and risers are exactly what I had in my mind. I cannot wait to see how the nickel balusters and  large box newels will look on the open side!

Hickory has tons of color variation (which is my favorite part).

As always, thank you for following along and have a wonderful week! Especially if it is a short work week for you!

    Hickory is my favorite because of the variations in color. I can’t wait to see it all finished. I’ve been wondering if you were able to get the paint spatters off the floor….I sure hope so! I look forward to more progress reports. You both have a wonderful rest of the week 🙂
