Our house has a central stair system but the handrail system was outdated – complete with dark colors and vertical balusters. It was in serious need of updating. I had always wanted to do a cable railing system, but honestly it felt a little intimidating even after I’ve done just about everything you can do in a home remodel. However, we did some research and took the plunge, step by step. I am excited to say that it turned out amazing and it was not very expensive at all. This cable railing makes the central part of our home look better, and adds value to it as well. My goal is to share our whole process and exactly what we bought with links below so you can tackle the same project either inside your home or on your back deck! *Disclaimer: These instructions, photos & video are not intended to meet the requirements of your local building code.
