A little stair update

If you recall, we left off realizing that once the wall was down, we needed to put new treads and risers on the last 4 steps.



Then came the fun of staining and painting. We chose a stain color.


If you know me on Facebook, you know we chose “English Chestnut”.

If you saw me at the wedding last night, you saw the beautiful shade for yourself on my hands.

Then came the fun part of sanding, sanding, sanding. Getting the paint off the top stairs was proving to be a pain in my ass.


Then I went down to dads and he let me borrow this little tool…..


Hello lover….


It went from taking me an hour per step using the hand sander and sanding by hand to get into all the corners, to an hour to finish all 8 steps.



Brian and I fought like two kids over this tool. If only we’d had more stairs…..



We hung up plastic in a very futile attempt to keep the dust contained.

But I've decided the dust is staying.

I've grown attached to it.



And…..that’s all I can show you until I’m done. I don’t want to ruin the surprise!!

You don't have to fight at our house. You can come over and I will let you do all the stairs!

They are going to look awesome.
