Stair Makeover!

My niece Robyn and her husband bought our old farm house when we had our home built next door.  This  staircase was enclosed with a door going upstairs. They took down the wall, to show the banister and enlarge the dining room.  That left a gaping hole under the stairs, perfect for storage.  Robyn told Jay how she wanted the hole enclosed, and he built this fantastic shelving unit complete with a perfect size door for access to the space. Robyn had him put a glass doorknob that was on one of the homes original doors to open it. It turned out beautiful!  The original pinewood floors were uncovered, and refinished. Not bad for a home well over 100 years old!
