Adding Shiplap to the back hall!

THIS is where I left you
with Shiplap closing in the stair & back door wall.

*Walls had issues-
this was an easy repair!

Since then–

the former FRONT door replaced this door for more privacy and security, and the door casing was restored.

Brandon and I hung the new handrails we created from some more of the galvanized pipes, elbows, nubs, and flanges!


And I hung the 
wire hook rack & antique mirror his mother gave him!

the Back Hall/Entry

Brandon loves the whole Industrial vibe, so the galvanized pipes are used playfully in several ways.  The shelf brackets in the kitchen, for the handrails, and also in several light fixtures throughout the house!

But be warnedthe parts are NOT cheap!  We spent a good bit of time comparing the sizes of pipe and the galvanized vs black pipe just to keep the costs down to something reasonable!
*Plus- one store wanted $8 for a flange but another charged $4 for the same thing!  So the numerous parts needed came from numerous stores.  CRAZY.

And here’s the fun turn
we created to wrap
the end of the wall!
There’s also a 2ft rail leading up into the kitchen.

Hmmm- maybe we need to wrap
the Shiplap around the corner too!

It’s totally him!

The steps will be dealt with in the basement renovations–
and hopefully we can get that awful textured paint off to expose the cool chimney brick!
