Progress Report: Painted Stairs

 I had forgotten I hadn't shared these stair pictures yet. Sometimes life goes too fast for me! Lol! Anyway, Mandy came to help me get these done last week and I am so excited with how they turned out! I was kind of sad to paint the stairs until I realized I didn't have to paint them all one color. I love the look of stained wood treads and painted white kick plates, so that is what I tried to mimic. As you can see the treads were already half painted multiple colors with plenty of dings and dents.

 In these pictures the kick plates are only primed, but they have already been painted and look so fresh now! The paint is actually the same color that I used on the front porch which makes it nice. I wanted a warm brown that wouldn't clash with the newel post or banister. It always makes us hungry for dark chocolate! Lol!
We also got the outlets changed out in the kitchen, the bathtub caulked and a towel rack hung in the bathroom. A lot of little projects that take time, but each one gets up closer to the finish line!
