Stairs Renovation Update #3

Welp, I hope this is the LAST update.  Visions of a reveal are dancing in my head.  Nonetheless, here's where we are today.  I wont be able to come home today during the 9-5 lunch break today because I need to go pick up some more paint!  Why?!?  Well, because thanks to Papi and his generosity....the board and batten wall is almost done!  There are a couple of pieces in the pictures below where it's not nailed completely to the wall, and that's because I couldn't use the nailgun this morning because Mr. A2B had the day off, and the Little Monsters were sleeping!!!  But you get the idea.  Think I'm nuts for thinking it'll be done this weekend?  Maybe a little.  And oh yes...busted out the wood filler one last time... :(

Every other step is finished.  I can see the hole in my wall will be......coming soon!!!!!!  DIY burlap runner here I come.  Creativity don't fail me now!  Is it too soon to say we're in the home stretch?  I think the worst part might be taping off all of the steps to paint the rises and spindles....again... :(

BTW-I'll post a tutorial on all of this when it's done!

Happy Friday~!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Comments make my day! Do not panic if I don't get back to you right away! It probably means the little monsters have broken something and I'm fixing it!
