I love love my new stairs.
This isn’t the greatest picture. It has been raining and and it really overcast today. They are shiny but that will reduce a little with time.
This is what I see when I look over my shoulder from the computer. Lovely view. It’s really not such an orangy red in person.
I can’t wait to hang the red and white quilt but, alas I must. I need to get a piece of wood cut for mounting. Where is everybody?
UPDATE: Quilt has been hung.
Have I mentioned I believe there is a conspiracy in my family to keep me from actually finishing all decorating projects… well I have evidence.
Yeah, when I touched up the white, he walked through that too. Give me strength.
Cindy from Random-Charm said something in her comment on SMS, about painting that really made me think. She mentioned she grew up in a military family and they didn’t live in houses that they owned so her family never really painted their homes for themselves. I on the other hand spent 18 years in one house, then 6, and now 18 years in this house. Wow I’ve never looked at it like that before. My mother loved to decorate. She was and still is always painting, wallpapering,refinishing, sewing and crafting. Her brother owned a paint store and she worked there from time to time. And can you guess where my part time job is?… wait for it… a paint store! Decorating has really been a big part of my life. When we where kids my parents use to buy houses fix them up and sell them. I can’t tell you how many rooms I’ve painted. I still paint for family and friends but usually only if they let me pick the colours. Really. I sometimes am amazed by people who buy furniture and decorate like once in 30 years. wow eh? Not for me. Just think of all the money I’d have if I didn’t decorate constantly. I really do it to help the economy though. You can thank me later.
