If you follow Stone Textile on Instagram you will know that we recently bought our first home in Austin (follow along using #modernbungalow). It was built in 2010 but, there are still a few upgrades + design projects that we need to accomplish. One major one was a carpet-on-wall situation. Yes, we bought a house with ugly gray carpet on the staircase walls. This week we had it removed and I could not be happier. Here are some before + after photos…
Before: Gray carpet, dark brown railing, aluminum stair edging.
Progress: Carpet is off! Drywall needs to go up to create a smooth surface for paint.
After: Dark walls painted using Benjamin Moore “Ebony King”, railing painted with Metallic Masters / Smoke Gray, since I love brass anything we switched out the stair edging. I always think the little things that really give character to a space..even if it is just a staircase!
I found this vintage piece at the Austin Antique Mall a few months ago…love how it looks in this little nook. There are three sconces that will go in the staircase and I cannot decide what to purchase. Will share my options next week! Have a great weekend….xx Elizabeth
