Step It Up

I haven’t blogged in about 10 million years. Okay, so maybe that’s an exaggeration, but you get the idea. So here’s a quickie–a little update I did that took two naps to complete, so about 4 hours for a regular person (that’s just for the vinyl sticker application; the rest of the steps were slowly completed over the past three years). First, where we started when we bought the house:
And where we are today, after stripping the carpet, painting the doors and trim, painting the stairwell and upstairs landing, and adding some chevron-tastic details:
Big difference, huh? The chevrons aren’t painted on (I don’t have that kind of patience or time these days, and I also didn’t want something that would take a lot of effort to remove if I didn’t like it); instead, they’re vinyl stickers from here. Yep, Pot & Kettle Studios made them custom to fit my risers, and they were super easy to install. And when I’m sick of them, they’ll be super easy to peel off.
Here’s a shot of them in black from their etsy shop:
So there you have it–proof that we’re still alive and still making some changes around here . . .
