Cedar Columns, Lighting, and Stained Stairs


The house seems to be coming right along. We are still planning on a close date of September 10th, but we are thinking it might actually be before then. Over the past few days, our lighting and cedar columns were installed, and the interior stair treads got their first coat of stain.


The front porch cedar columns are in place. The curved arms will be delivered this week.


I love the look of the over garage lights. They are large, rectangular sconces with a clear seeded glass made by Forte Lighting. The iron pattern mimics the prarie grills in our windows.


The back porch light is such a cute little transitional sconce also made by Forte Lighting.


Our master bathroom lights are part of the Halstead collection from Craftmade. They are a 3 bulb, chrome finish, with frosted glass globes.


Yesterday, the first coat of stain was applied to the interior stair treads. They have such a rich, dark brown coloring. This gives us an idea of what to expect with the rest of our hardwood flooring!
