I forgot to show the before and after photos of the stair remodel. I don't really have a before photo, because Romeo had removed all of the carpeting on his first day of vacation, and didn't think about it. I would have mentioned it, but I was out of the loop for his plans.....I simply came home and the carpeting was gone and he was pulling tack strips, nails and staples out.
Our stairs, sans carpeting, because some people are impatient and impulsive.
Here is a little bit of the carpeting that used to be on the stairs. Here, I took the photo while looking down at the stairs from the second story.
Going up, anyone? I think the risers look lighter than the wall on the left because the sunlight is more direct....but they are painted the same color as the wall on the right.
Another photo of the lower set of stairs.
No, it's not done yet. We still need to patch and paint the nail holes on the risers, and caulk the small spaces between the wall and the stairs (& paint that too). We haven't yet started the flooring for the landing either, but the plan it to finish it before cold weather, because we will need to polyeurethane it after installation, which smells awful. Romeo thinks we can stain it before fitting it in, although I wonder if that is doable.
When I turned on the computer this morning, I discovered my wireless mouse would not connect. I've had this issue a few times before....
I spent 45 minutes restarting, turning the blue tooth off and on, replacing batteries in the mouse......over and over with no results, until finally it connected. I find this so frustrating and irritating. Why does this always seem to happen when I am trying to get things done in a limited time frame? ARGH! Get me a hammer, I'll fix it good!!!
