I took a leap and decided it was time to tackle the basement stairs.
Remember here where I ripped off the carpet? That was back in April!
It really wasn't all that hard, just time consuming.
Today I filled staple holes, sanded, sanded again.
Hint: Keep your vacuum going to suck up the dust as you sand.
And cover the smoke detector. Learned that the hard way when the alarm sounded off.
Gave me a heart attack.
Caulked seams and primed.
The trim and the back of the stairs received one coat of white and they look marvelous already.
I will tell you up to this point took me about 4 hours.
I have to paint the stair walls, one more coat of white on the stair backs and then I'm hitting the tops with porch paint...we'll see how that goes.
I love it already.
Off to put on my dancin' shoes for show time tonight. Wish me luck.
