Yesterday I let you all in on my stairwell Reno Part I! I didn’t want to leave you hanging too long so even though my project isn’t 100% complete I wanted to post what I do have done.
Remember… this is what I started with!
And here is where we are now. . .
Wait for it…
Here it is!
Welcome to the Dungeon Welcome to our lovely basement
Can you believe what a difference paint and a little manual labor can make! Here’s what I did:
- Pulled up the carpet painted treads black… hated them… painted them white! LOVE
- Painted the walls in the stair well and at the bottom … did you notice?
- Painted the trim work white… It makes a nice separation between the spaces
- Re-painted the basement floor and extended the line out past the wall using leftover paint the previous owners had
What could be left to do? Well here’s the deal-o… I really would like to add a bit more color to the space so I am on the hunt for a runner to go down the staircase.
But you just painted the stairs… why would you cover them?
Because I want to! What are you going to do about it… punk. ;) I love the white stairs but practically they are going to get filthy in the matter of months so I want to make them kid safe… for the future, and once again add a little more color to the area.
I am on the look out for a bargain. This girl is not buying $40 runners just to cut them up and staple them to stairs. We’ll see what I come up with!
How did I do?!?
