Progress: Stairwell edition

Continuing on our little tour of home improvement... most of which has been on the "decorating and arranging" spectrum since the springtime... I present to you, the stairwell. The early days.

We (Patrick) nailed the wainscoting back into place and spackled a big, uneven gap-- which took about seventeen applications of joint compound, and two weeks to dry, and now you can't even see the spot. He's golden, I'm tellin' ya. Then I primed and painted the wainscoting, and painted the walls Behr Baked Brie.

Then I took down the painter's tape (ha), and hung a couple of paintings. 

See, baby steps. Nothing life-changing, but a big improvement. A reason to smile every time I go downstairs. A little shot of motivation for finishing this-- painting the hallway floor and treads, and replacing/refurbishing the banister. We're gunning to get that done before Christmas.

How can you not love the color Baked Brie?
Good job!

I know, I'm loving it more and more. We're thinking of painting the downstairs bathroom the same color.

Wow! you two are amazing and talented to the max! Be careful on those bannister-lees stairs! Makes me nervous thinking about it.

That's on our pre-Christmas to-do list, for sure.
