Now that my hubby is home I should share with you one quick and easy alternative to a few much needed handrails.
The bottom three steps lack a handrail and having a window in the same area created a huge problem. I mean, who wants a handrail in front of a window.
I’ve had this really cool idea for a handrailing system for the staircase, but I haven’t come across the items I need to make it happen. That will have to wait for now.
I need something quick, cheap and nothing permanent.
The only solution would be to add assist bars to the doorway. But, again, I didn’t want a bright shiny pull bar in the living room. It’s a living room not a bathroom.
I searched Home Depot for an alternative to that bright and shiny assist bar.
Garage handles are black, easily installed and don’t scream bathroom.
I decided to hang them upside down to give more hand support.
I hung one of the handles on each side, in a location my husband could easily grab a hold of when climbing the stairs or coming down the stairs.
They’re black, cheap and fit right in. They’re not over powering and stick out from across the room. They work!
The garage handles were just under $10 for the pair. Super cheap!
This will work till…
When I find what I’m looking for, you’ll be the first to know.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you follow along for my crazy house DIY projects.
I’m sharing this project with one or all of these amazing linky parties.
