Goodbye Stairwell

Here are the final result of the stairwell - in color. I'm SO glad that's done!

Also notice that most of the staircase woodwork has been removed. This was quite tedious and nerve racking, but will make stripping and getting into all the nooks and crannies much easier. The spindles came out by using a scraper held flat against it to smack a hammer with out doing damage against the travel of the nail holding it place. This worked really well and all came out with no damage. The top spindles had to come out anyway near the top of the stairs so I could mud the wall behind them. Stripping all of this should be a fun project later in the year. (Note sarcasm)
