I'm so very excited!
Remember how unfortunate my stairwell used to be?
I think it looks so much better now...
Ignore the green walls. One project at a time, you know?

And here is the final product...
I love how the faux stair skirt lends a crisp look to the space, and I think all that ridiculous taping (hours of my life, people!) paid off.
I also adore how the painted runner turned out. Yellow can be such a tricky color, but I am head over heels in love with this one -- it's a warm muted gold, definitely not a school bus throwback.
And even though the teeny tiny dark stripes nearly gave me an ulcer and some gray hairs, I'm also really glad I took the time to tape, paint, re-tape, and patch them until my eyes crossed.
Did I mention that I'm so, so, so excited that
my life is back my stairs are done?
What exactly went into this project? Check it out:
Also... here's a step-by-step of how I painted the runner, in case you needed to make one yourself!
