When we finished our basement, I just couldn't see using the oak banisters that were installed originally leading down to the old dungeon. Now that we finished the basement, we needed a statement. This isn't our actual railing but you get the idea from this pic.
The hubs is pretty handy & always usually willing to carry out one of my 'creative' concepts. I found this picture in my 'The New Family Home' book and used it as my inspiration. See the black railings in the left side of the pic?
He has a metal bender out in his shop & bent these up for me. Put on a coat of black paint & up they go. I am really happy with how they turned out!
Wondering though about the carpet that is getting pretty worn. I would like to pull it up & paint the risers & maybe put a carpet runner down the steps. Anyone (besides one of my favorite bloggers Thrifty Decor Chick...can't wait for her stair reveal!) else done this?
