This is exactly how our stairs our laid out in our home...now I need to convince hubby to rip off the carpet and go for this look instead. I LOVE everything about it...the dark and white contrast, the white wainscoting on the walls, the white spindles going down with the dark railing in top...everything!!!
DIY tinted mason jars with Modge Podge and food coloring. ( mix Modge Podge and coloring in a bowl then coat the inside of the jar. Make sure color is dark enough for bright color. Place upside down on wax paper 30 min. Then put in oven 170 for 10min upside on wax paper. Then turn right side up for 30 min. Perfection)
