Started on the landing today. Painted the underside to match the pantry.

Placed the wainscoting on the side to see if that worked with the pattern.

Placed the landing on top of the stairs.

Works quite nicely there, I think.

Then I started cutting out trim for above the staircase.

Had to painstakingly notch out the top of each step to fit the edges of the treads…

Cut out a back board for the wainscoting as well and then placed both of them in the stairway.

Couldn’t see the wood well enough to decide if I liked it or not, so stained it before putting it back in place.

I’m pretty sure I like the effect, but I’ll sleep on it tonight and see in the morning.

Good night.
