It's crazy to think that five months ago, the stair project was simply tape on the floor! Moving the stairs was a big decision, but certainly the best one. For materials, we researched our options for months and had a hard time finding anything within our budget that achieved the look we wanted.
Behold, Rebar! This insanely cheap material allowed us to complete our stair railing project for UNDER $100 (Yep, you read that right). While the materials were cheap, I can take no responsibility for this project. My dad spent many of hours in his woodshop working on the posts, trim, and railing and we are SO, SO happy with the results!
We still need to stain, finish the trim, and complete the actual stairs...but, you get the idea!
