Are you ready??  Some of you may know that I was remaking my stair case while Derek was out of town over the weekend.  This project started a month ago when I ripped up the nasty brown carpet covering the stairs.  And it is now complete…ready to be crossed off the list.

Statement Stairs

So, yes.  Between being locked out of the house and locked into the garage…I made my staircase look like one fit for a dollhouse.  I’m impressed with myself.  I knew I wanted them white with dark treads.  Then I took it a step further {after spending some time drooling over this statement staircase} by making a statement.  Hospitality is deeply important to Derek and me, so I painted “welcome” on the risers in different languages.  {The top riser is braille!  Fun, right?}

And now I’ve got candy to make.  {Another something you’ll be seeing in the coming days.}
