Come on Up !

The stairs are finished ! Yippeee!

I am so excited about this as it has taken "a while"  for us to get around to completing all the painting required.  You can imagine with five people going up and down the stairs several times a day, there never seems to have been a time when the traffic was light enough to allow us to paint and dry sufficiently.  Coats were added at random times and now it is finally the "right" colour. 

The stenciled words are a quirky finishing touch .  Milo popped his rabbit on the stairs this morning, complete with raised leg.  Think he may have his mummies eye for styling !

Painted to compliment the beautiful Laura Ashley wallpaper purchased in a sale several years ago, I am really happy with the end result.  As for the four men in our home ..... 


One of the rare moments when No 1 son helped around the house.  Can't believe how small he is in this photo,At nearly 16 yrs old now he is nearly as tall as his dad !
