Our friend Tammy has been doing an amazing job of stripping our 100+-year-old staircase...
Thw wainscoting is new and yet to be painted, and we're getting rid of that old white piece of moulding above it.
What idiot thought it was a good idea to paint this beautiful wood?
We don't know what kind of wood it is, but it's a warm, gorgeous colour with beautiful grain. Around here we have maple, birch, pine, spruce, some oak... anyone have a clue? It's not a softwood like pine.
I can't wait to see this when it's done.
The wood on the stairs is pretty crappy (and that's carpet glue across the risers) so we are going to paint them but I have no idea what colour!
Alex approves! I will post more pics of the progress as it goes along. Tammy is so damn fast. She thinks she's slow, but she's amazing.
