So, stairway. Here's the before, when we were thinking of buying the house (what did we see in it, again? Sometimes I can't believe we saw through the vinyl and green brain rug. Also, isn't it a tripping hazard to put a chair in front of the stairs?)
We didn't entirely realize how much it was detracting from the living room until 2 days ago, when it looked like this (note open drawer with take out menus, obviously it was a long day & required food delivery!):
Major changes happened at the top of the stairs, where the door to an old closet used to be. The closet is now our shower, and the door is now downstairs, the door to our half bath.
So, just wall now - but a looker nonetheless.
And going upstairs, this was a huge difference. Before, evil wallpaper and green brain carpet:
And that's all for this week - more next week, when we take a stab at some of those last details...
