I hope that you had a good weekend. It was nice to finally get some much needed rain and cooler temps here. Our grass is smiling big now!
Since it rained most of the day on Saturday, I decided to do some painting inside. I have been wanting to get rid of the orange/brown color stain on my stair treads for a long time. I finally got up the nerve to get my white paint out and just tackle it! My knees are feeling it now too! But, I'm very happy with the outcome. Here is what my stair case looked like before.
I was getting ready to paint them in this picture. That's why the furniture is pulled away from the wall.
And here is what it looks like now.
I'm completely smitten with the new cleaner look! Good-bye ugly stain color that did not match anything in my house! Hello glossy white that fits right in!
Here is a view from the front door.
See? White is right!
You may also have noticed that I did some swapping around of other things too. I swapped my blue and white knit rug (that was in the foyer) for this grey and white one (that was in my bathroom). I also swapped my blue chest (that was in the foyer) for the white chest (that was in the sitting room). Did you follow that?
I changed some of the accessories around as well. I added texture to all the white by bringing in curly willow on a wooden pedestal and a wall basket filled with greenery.
Even my dining room got some changes with an ottoman in place of a chair and some striped pillows.
Who knew that just by changing the color of my stair treads that so much else would get changed as well? One thing always seems to lead to another.
Of course, now I keep asking myself why I waited so long to do this! Isn't that always the way? I had the paint on hand and everything else so this was zero dollars redecorating!
Hope you have a great Monday!
Thanks for stopping by.
