In Progress - Painting the Stairs

Painting in Progress
November 1, 2010

Our listing agent recommended painting the staircase to the sunporch.  This echoed our previous  listing agent's advice but with ending the listing and going on vacation we didn't get around to it.  When it was mentioned again, I put out an SOS to one of our kids who picked up the paint on Monday and prepped the staircase.  I started paint the same day.  We are now working against the weather but think it can still be finished by Thursday.  Pictured is the first coat of white paint going on the staircase.  I must say it does make a difference!  In all honesty this project should have been done quite some time ago but we got wrapped up in other projects that needed being done sooner.

Hi Laura, painting is one of the easiest ways to spruce up a room. Good luck on your project :)
