I started yesterday morning with removing the rest of those stupid upholstery staples. All seven zillion of them. Then I sanded the stairs once with my palm sander and coarse sandpaper. Messy, messy, messy. Then I did the same thing with fine grit sandpaper. More messy. While I was at it I took the sander to the chipped trim on the staircase as well. The whole thing needs a re-paint so I figured that while I was making a mess, I might as well.
After a shop-vac and a run at it with my Dyson, it looks like this:
|top run of stairs|
|bottom run of stairs|
All ready for priming and painting! But it took me all day yesterday to complete the job. Then I had to clean up the rest of my house since there was a fine layer of filth all over everything from the sanding. I was super grumpy. I like instant gratification.
Then I got my mail...
|What have we here???? A present??? FOR ME???|
It's a present for me!!! I won a giveaway at My Best Friend Craig. I can't wait to show you the gallery wall where I'm hanging it in Audrey's room.
Thank you for brightening my day Charmaine!
