I don't know about you, but I personally need to STOP!!! Okay, so maybe just slow down. A. LOT. It all started when I ripped the carpet off the stairs...then, this all happened....Started looking around and thinking...yep, bad, I know. Then, looked around in Bloggieland for some inspiration...and went at it...
-Rip carpet off stairs-check
-Decide to do a board and batten wall or two-check
-Discover HUGE waste of space under stairs-check
-Create a playhouse under the stairs-check
-Decide to repaint wall above board and batten wall-check
-Decide I really don't like our entry way-check
-Do something about it-WELP, CHECK!!
This project was a "quickie". Everything else around this area is new...Kitchen (I'll get to posting that soon), new board and batten, new stairs, new runner, new clubhouse/storage....so why not the entry? Well, here's part of it...the walls are like 30' high! For starters. I had replaced the fixtures like two years ago...and no, unfortunately I did not save the old crap ones because I was unaware they were worth like a million bucks because I wasn't a blogger then, and I was soooooo happy to get rid of the 80's brass-that, I didn't care. I know...I'm kicking myself now but that's okay. I moved the bench next to the clubhouse, and the dry sink over on another wall, and it opened up our "foyer"... I don't know if this counts as a "foyer" or not, but for all intents and purposes, we are going to call it that because it sounds fancy and I like it! MMMMMkkk? k!
So Here's a before...
Yep...nothing special. No character. So, I thought, hmmm....I do have a table upstairs that's not being used for much....and it would be perfect there. The little voices in my head made me do it. PLUS...I figured it was FREE...Litterally, I rescued it out of my neighbor's trash pile. She's a silly girl. I finally told her (last October) to just start putting things in my driveway...so she did. A whole house full of furniture. She was moving and was in this "I am only taking what fits in a backpack" mode...so, I gladly helped her move...almost all of her things into my garage. More on that later. I mentioned here how much I'm loving the "industrial style"....so here's what I came up with; here she is before....

And...the stairs are done...If only I could decide on a gallery wall!
