So, we’ve been stringing this project out for quite a while now. Last weekend, we hosted a party in our backyard, and people would need to use the back stairs to access it, so we kicked it up a notch and finally finished this space. We still need to get a set of hooks to hang jackets on and add some art back here, but the majors are done. As a refresher for what the old space looked like:
That’s the stairs after we ripped out the linoleum, which looked like this:
Like we said previously, we had planned to paint the stairs, but what we found underneath (see above) didn’t really lend itself well to that idea. So, we carpeted…ourselves!
After a lot of sanding, carpeting, painting, and general fixing-up (including a small carpentry job), we were done. Here’s the space now. Note: it’s hard to take pictures in such a small room where the only floor spaces is stairs, but this gives you an idea anyway.
