Since my knee surgery, I have not been able to easily leave by the front door without assistance. At first I could only leave through the garage using grab bars. Once I was able to leave by the front door, it was a little scary….I had to crab-walk my way down the three steps. (Hard to do that and look elegant, trust me on this.)
The weather finally cooperated so that my husband could cut, grind, weld, etc. a simple stylish handrail. We didn’t want anything with curls because it would not really go with the brick flower boxes in front of the house.
I must say, being able to take the steps on my own give me a sense of accomplishment. Now I don’t exactly “fly” down the steps, but I can take the stairs confidently. A shout out to my husband who can build/create anything.
So glad you are better! Looks lovely
Thanks, I’ll pass it on. It looks simple, but takes a lot of skill. It’s also as steady as a rock!

And hug that man of yours for me!!
Yay for the husband/builder! And glad to hear you’re feeling better. I know your pain. Really. “being able to take the steps on my own give me a sense of accomplishment.” I know that feeling. It may seem small but it’s not. ❤ Happy Holidays!
Happy Holidays to you as well. Thanks so much!
