… our stairs are nearly done! I’m excited. I think they look pretty. Almost as important, tonight I can go upstairs in stockinged feet to sleep in our bed! I can also take a shower and pick out some new clothes. Yay!
They will be doing second coats on the paint and touch-up staining on the undersides of the hand rails for another week, but my basement dweller status is coming to an end. I’m ready.
Eventually I will want a carpet runner on the stairs for safety, but I will need time to consider what style will be best, and also to save up the necessary dollars.
DH returns at midnight from his business trip so the timing has been perfect. Every bit of progress is so heartening. There won’t be any more real gains until next summer, but for now it’s enough.
