When I realized this, just after I had finished painting the fireplace, and saw light coming through from an unfinished part of the wall, I called Sean excitedly and said, "I'm going through that wall!!"
|This is where I noticed the light coming through and I took this pic the moment I decided I was going through it!|

I spent an evening painting the stairwell and even priming the stairs, but with kids and pets and a million other things needing to be done, the stair makeover ended at that point. So for a year, the stairs have just been covered in primer, and being a high traffic area, turned a very nasty shade of dirty, no matter how much I swept and vacuumed them.
I had a house with no kids for a few hours today and decided I would just go for it, and finally get these things done! I could not be more pleased with the results!
I chose a really high quality deck/patio paint in this color:
Here are my before/after shots:
|I took the finished photo at nearly 1AM, and did not want to disturb the wet paint, that is why my paint rag is still at the bottom of the stairs.|
My next project is to cover that gross tile at the bottom of the stairs with something amazing!! Stay tuned!
