Staircase, Check!

Hello dear blogging friends!

I do hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I'm blessed to say that mine's was full of family, fun, good food and a bit of productivity... Productivity, you ask? Well you see, since this was a three day weekend for my hubby I thought I would beg ask if he would work on some pending house projects. I'm excited to say that now I'll be able to check a few more items off that infamous list of things to do, yay!!! Here is one of the projects we worked on....

Do you remember my stairs? Below is a before picture...

And do you remember I wanted to stencil something on the risers and finish the sides with trim?

Well, here they are! What do you think? Oh, and did you see? I repainted the walls too but, I did that a while back. I just needed the trim done by my hubby to consider this project completed!

I did the numbers a while back too. Didn't end up stenciling them though. I used my cool Cricut machine to cut out some vinyl numbers instead. I think they look awesome.

I'm still finishing off the other projects...Hubby nails, cuts, hammers, saws and builds, but the painting, finishing touches and decorating are my job...So as soon as the other projects are done I will share with you. Be sure to check back to see them. Until then my friends.

Thank you for stopping by today for a visit.


Hugs and Kisses,

Your stairs turned out so cute! The trim makes all the difference. What a sweet hubby you have! You work well together!

I love that you utilized numbers on each step riser. Counting "steps" is one of the first tools we use to teach our children their numbers and I still find myself counting steps to this day. There is something very childlike about this simple counting task and it always makes me smile. Sea Witch

They look adorable! What a great use for the cutter as well. I've often thought of purchasing one, but tend to not scarpbook as much as I used to.

Hi, Ana,
Your stairs look fabulous!! I am glad you decided on the numbers (very French looking). The wicker basket with linens looks wonderful along with the pretty pitcher. I also love your lamp that you made for your kitchen, very, very pretty! Enjoy the rest of your week, sweet friend, and have a fabulous weekend. Sending love and hugs your way~ Vicki
