Board and Batten Wainscoting: Basement Stairway pt.212:43:00 AM
I left off yesterday comparing my inspiration pic for my stairway B&B, with my progress thus far:
At this point, I had only primed my wall and boards, but had yet to add the additional trim pieces.
I replaced the old cove molding at the base of the B&B with new foam cove molding found at Lowe’s. It cost’s about $4/8 ft piece.
When adding the ledge, I had some difficulty measuring the correct angle, so I used the same technique using a small level and pencil to mark the board where it should be cut. This was very tricky—I ended up needing to sand the ledge board’s angle down to make it fit.
Next, I went ahead and added the cove molding below the ledge to add a little more of a decorative touch.
You may have also noticed that I am updating the flooring on the landing as well, with the Traffic Master Ceramica Tile flooring left over from my kitchen project.
I am so ecstatic about this people! I’ve been wanting to tackle this project for months now! Thanks again to Lisa at Shine Your Light and Brittany at Pretty Handy Girl for the wonderful inspiration to get me started.
Here’s a before and after.
Now all there's left to do is caulk, paint walls and stair risers, and grout the floors! (What about the stair treds? That’s another story . . .)
As always, Thanks for stopping by!
