Ok so listen, I'm not finished 100% with this project but I just HAD to show you. Why? Because I.Am.In. L-O-V-E.
A few months ago I saw Rhoda from Southern Hospitality attempt this massive project. When I saw her before and after pictures I just KNEW we had to try this.
And I am so glad we did.
It took almost a month, had to take a break for El Salvador. :) And I could really only work on it at night when the girls were asleep. Because...um....girls and paint on the stairs? Not a good combo. So it was a long project for us.
We still have to take the banister down on the wall and paint it but that will be done soon. I just couldn't wait to show you!
But the cost? Super cheap.
Paint = $30
sand paper = $5
Brush's = $10 (note: we opted to buy cheaper brushes to throw away b/c I don't have the patience nor time to deal with cleaning brushes)
So the total roughly was: $45!
First we had to take all the carpet off. That was a task.
I was so happy to see the condition of the stairs underneath. Just a few spots needed some wood fill but they were ready to be sanded in no time.
There's my man. Sanding away. Please note....I DID participate in this...there are just no pictures to prove such things. But this was MY project. [sorta]
