Do you ever randomly come across something that immediately strikes you as a solution to a problem?
Way back when Erin and I first started planning out her Attic Bedroom reno (that would be 2 years ago now) I came across this futon frame at the side of the road. It was rather busted up, but the finish on it was beautiful.
I really liked the wood.
And it looked a lot like a railing to me.
One that would make the open landing to Erin’s attic bedroom so much safer!
Added bonus, it was a very close match to her floor color!
That’s how this broken down, discarded futon happened to get a new job.
No more worrying about someone stepping off the landing and down the stairs!
I’m not entirely done with this part yet, we held off installing the other section so we could move the furniture up there easier.
And I still have to fill all the screw holes and touch up the stain.
And trim around it….
But at least you can get the general idea!
