new stair railing

I was going to wait to show you this after we finished all the trim, caulking, and painting, but that could be awhile and I just couldn't wait. 

We have a new basement stair railing!

We couldn't be happier with how it finishes everything off. And we are relieved to have the safety factor resolved of course. The look is clean and modern and perfect, just like I wanted.

The railing was built by my dad's cousin, of Specialty Iron Works in Great Falls. They do great work! My hope is to eventually do the same railing outdoors on our porch, which is in desperate need of an upgrade. I think this style is perfect for our house.

So do you dig it?
