Doneski!! After 13 years we finally got the stairway finished. We wanted it to be one of the last things and it was. We were going to get oak steps but decided to just sand down the pine that has been there since we built the place and put birch veneer on the kick plate. They sanded down real nice and then we applied a stain and 5 coats of varathane. Rejean added a few trim pieces and then put the titanium stair nosing. We are very pleased with the results.
It looks dark heading downstairs and light when heading upstairs.
