Got to work on the back hallway today. Started by painting the floor base black so the cracks between the floor boards would look better.

Cut out some floor boards…

Stained them and laid them down in place.

Also stained the door frame, a base board, and a few extra spots on the staircase…

Then, because I can’t seem to leave well enough alone, instead of making the landing simple floor boards, I created a pattern.

Stained some of the boards…

And here you go….I may still stain the lighter boards the same color to make the pattern a bit more subtle…these are the back stairs after all.

Next I created the back wall for the pantry under the stairs.

Painted and trimmed it and placed it in the correct space (nothing is glued in yet…not even the floor boards. I want to make sure everything fits first).

Here’s the view of the pantry and the back hall from the kitchen….excuse the reflections in the glass.

And viewed from the drawing room doorway…

Next I will need to create the second set of stairs…laid a piece of white cardboard here to show how it will look.

So happy to be back at it again…looking forward to receiving the lights for the hallway and stairs in the mail. Stairs next…and a wine cellar and shelves…

For now…good night.
