Hallway and Stairs

The hallway is painted! The trim is just normal trim white and the wall color is "Snow Cap" by Valspar. The beadboard ceiling is staying natural and the stairs are still unfinished right now.

I bought these Pottery Barn shelves for a steal at a garage sale last summer. There are 8 units in this picture, but I only have 5. I think it'll be a perfect use of space in this wide hallway.

The brown under the stair treads will be painted white and I think I'm going to number them in a really faint color. Ideally, a stair runner would be great, but I don't think we have the money for that now. We still need to order the sheet metal to go in between and then will trim out the border and add a handrail to finish it off in between the beams.


  1. so, what's happening for the stair railing???? sheet metal??? between the posts, wood railing on top of that??? sounds interesting...ramona

  2. Love the book shelves!! What a great yard sale find. I want something like that for our basement's new play room/scrapbook room.

    Can't wait for you to get into your house!!

  3. It's all coming together! I'm always so impressed when I visit!
