Its been a long time (like a year) since I posted! Just had a lot going on and no real time to paint. We moved into our house a few months ago, and hope to NEVER move again. We got a good buy on a home at the beach- good buy means lots of work to do. The first thing we did was tear up the stairs. Thick pink carpet with a runner on top. After we got all of that removed, we had to rebuild the steps to cover the bare plywood. I did not know that you could just go to Lowe's and buy stair treads and risers. Of course, it would help if they all just fit- but, every step was a little different measurement!
My husband's problem was the actual construction. My job was painting them. I chose paint colors for the risers that had a sea glass feel- 7 shades of blues and greens. The treads are white.
As soon as the stairs were painted and installed, it was time to start a beach mural on the three walls of the staircase. The bottom photo shows the beginning of the mural- step one. I will be posting the mural progress as I go along. This is pure fun for me, and I think it will always be a work in progress as I add elements to it.
Anyway, I have been away from my blog for way too long and hope to stay with it! For now, I have some wallpaper to go peel off. Did I mention the house came complete with pink carpet, pink painted walls and wallpaper? Good thing I like projects, as I think this will take a while.
Now, I am off to check out my favorite artist blogs- a little break, then to the wallpaper removal.
