Staircase part 1...

Good evening Ladies :)
I am just starting to feel my energy levels are coming back up after our holiday.
Since the moment we arrived home three weeks ago we have been busy, Louie is a little over whelmed with work and slowly slowly he has been coming home later and later. He has worked every weekend for the past three weeks.

There is much work to be done in our home, while we were away I decided that my first job was to give our stairs a fresh coat of paint and make them look pretty.
We do not like carpets, we much prefer painted floor boards and washable rugs here and there to give warmth and comfort.
So I have been painting the stair treads, I thought I would show you in two or three parts. So far they have had two coats of a water based floor paint, tomorrow I will give them there third and final coat. The paint has gone on lovely and I have enjoyed this project so far.
My pictures are not brilliant but you will get an idea, the colour I chose is " Goose White", its a soft grey colour, the photo's do not give it justice.

Now I know this all looks very bare but trust me there is a " piece de resistance" at the end,
We have a student arriving at the weekend to rent our room for a month so I have to finish it!!!
I am already thinking of my next painting project when this one is finished ;)
Well ladies I wish you all a lovely evening and give you part two in the next couple of days. God Bless x
