Project Information

This is the last part of our downstairs remodel. The builder grade newel post and ballisters had to go - in their place I built this Craftsman inspired newel with a Motawi tile inset in the top. I pulled the old carpet off the treads ( which also ran up the sides of the stringers) and added hardwood treads and painted the risers and stringers to match the custom baseboards. A glass mosaic tile insert tops off the rail at the top.

Very well done, Like the notches on the ballisters and the glass tile is a nice touch.

Nice custom newel post, not your ordinary.
Reminds me of victorian (back in the day when THEY WERE custom built)

Rex,

I would have preferred to not have painted it, but that would have meant replacing ALL of the trim in my house! Not an option!!!! :)

Classic lines and great detail. I love em! Don't worry about painting, it blends seamlessly with the house, just as it should.
