The BIG Reveal!

Ok the BIG day is here! I am finally going to post the "after" shots of the staircase! I know a couple of posts back I talked all about the beautiful rugs by Dash + Albert and then at the end told you that I didn't pick one of their rugs so you're probably wondering which rug I did pick. Drum roll please....!

I bought 3 - 2'2"x10' runners from Joss & Main. The benefits of this rug are that the synthetic fibres are easy to clean and so far resistant to cat barf (a MAJOR bonus!) So enough about the rug itself, here is the finished staircase!

Those pesky angles kind of bit us in the butt!

What a perfect shot looking down the stairs.

Big improvement over what we started with.

So yes we did get caught up on the angle our stairs take on the corner. In my head where my math is always perfect, I thought it should be pretty straightforward to navigate those angles but in practice, not so much. So because we only had pre-made runners to work with, we did the best we could which means the risers of the 2 curved steps are not covered. Honestly after living with it for a month or so, I don't even notice. I am just so happy the project is complete and looks fantastic and didn't cost us an arm and a leg. So now before we go, one last Before and After!
