I'm so excited to show this project, because it is one of my favorites! When we first bought our house, the stairs were covered with the original green & yellow vinyl and trimmed with metal edges. They were ugly. It took until we completely finished the basement to finally carpet them and add a new railing. On my quest to finish the house, I wanted to do something more. I decided to do batten board on the connecting hallway, but wasn't sure what to do to tie the two spaces together. This is what I came up with and I LOVE it! There are so many great tutorials for batten board, but I found I used this one most.
Before, with the awesome original green step and metal edge! Sadly, you can't see the beautiful green & yellow vinyl.
After we had the carpet and railing installed. What an improvement!
