… you can stop holding your breath now.

I’m not gonna lie, I hope the title didn’t oversell this little post too much, because honestly, we’re not quite done with the stairway . But we’re nearly there, and I’m confident (at least  I’m pretty sure) you’ll like the changes.

Disclaimer: The lighting in this stairway is very difficult when it comes to good photos, so bear with me, or just come on over and see it in person. 😉 Stairway Before and After 2 Stairway Before and AfterWe’ve been spending many a weekend hours getting to this point – most recently we finished painting the walls, trim and ceiling. Hallelujah! Painting Hallway 1No thanks to a certain dog creepin’ on our work. ↓ Cosmo StairwayJeff also made us a new handrail (the old one had at least ten coats of paint) using a stain you might recognize. ↓ Stairway hand rail Stairway Handrail 2I can’t express it, but I’m still giddy with excitement over that handrail. I’m just easy to please I guess (said no one ever).

And last, but certainly not least, we said goodbye to our gold (hey there 1990) light fixtures once and for all! Hanging Hallway Light Fixture 2 Hanging Hallway Light Fixture Stairway Light Fixture 1If you look closely, you might notice our bathroom door doesn’t look quite right and you’d be correct. This is where the “mostly done” part comes in, because here’s what we still have left to do:

  • Finish painting the doors
  • Fix the trim around the bathroom and bedroom doors
  • Move the second light fixture (not pictured) on the side of the wall to the ceiling and later patch the hole and paint over it
  • Hang the gallery wall!! (The part I’m most looking forward to)

Oh, is that all that’s left?

This weekend we’re headed out west, but Memorial Day Weekend, Jeff and I have a big ol’ date with a that DIY list. It should be non-stop fun.
