Not stitching...what am I doing?
I've walked up and down those basement stairs many times each day and I finally decided enough already! We had removed the fake wood panelling last year and patched all the holes but with one thing and another, never got the stairwell primed and painted.
Tuesday, I found the primer, paint to match, drop cloths, everything but a roller cover. Got that after supper.
Wednesday I started in ernest, beginning at the short ell part of the hall. Primed the walls, then topcoated, and finished with priming the 2 doors in that hallway.
This morning I topcoated the doors and while they are drying, went about looking for a ladder to reach that part over the door! I got it set up and tentatively climbed higher and higher until I could reach. Even though I'm alone in the house, I locked the door just in case DH comes home early to surprise me.
So with a marg container of primer, a brush in my hand and a silent prayer in my hand I went up and got the priming done! Yhew...now a well deserved rest while that dries and I get re-focused. I'm afraid of heights!!!!
I'll tackle some more colour after lunch! I love that gold colour...it's going to stay a looong loooong time!
