traditional spindles on staircase

When we moved into the new house, there was literally nothing wrong with the spindles. They were very traditional, with an alternating basket and swirl style. But since we were trying to get the house away from traditional style and make it a little more modern, the more we updated our decor, the spindles were just kind of throwing it off.

So, we went about the work of trying to find spindles that fit our modern style a bit better!

We landed on these square-style spindles… They were Jason’s favorite!!

We ended up giving ALL the old spindles to a lovely woman here in Kansas City because she wanted to use them for her home. So, we did repurpose them, which made us super happy! Check out this before and after view…

I love that our new spindles have clean lines and a little more interest than a plain spindle would. The color is a beautiful matte black and they just have completely changed the look and feel of the space.

We’re so happy with how they turned out. If you love the gold lighting above our stairs, you can get the details in my blog post HERE. Oh, and just for fun… Here’s a photo of my girls enjoying the new space 🙂

So, there you have it, my friends! Never forget that something as simple as your spindles can totally transform the look of your home… especially if you have an open floor plan and your staircase is very visible!
