Seems like ages ago
that the art loft looked like this
and the stairs
looked like this
(oopsie...coffee break going on!)
I remember how excited I was to have sheet rock
I got so spoiled along the way I suppose
because then I wanted
Holy Jerico! Paint color that is!
Do you remember this old table I bought at a garage sale in Lubbock?
and the sweet birds...the painting is still wrapped up
I actually might change the wall color due to this painting
it's not the one I chose the paint color around and it's a bit too Kelly
Just playing around with what I have that I might put here
that's my favorite part of it all!
and after the paint...well, (spoiled me) I wanted the stairs to be kind of
So we got some tiles
16 different patterns
one design for each stair
the brick wall will be painted once the trim and molding are up
although...I'm kind of liking the raw look of the brick
this brick wall was covered with stone...so lots of mortar on it
it's original to the old house built in 1921
the railing is plain old sucker rod...as in water well sucker rod...and cedar
See those cute little stair lights?
Just like the Lyric Theatre
they cast the softest glow for those who wander during the night
Just have to
stain the concrete (or lay tile...still undecided)
paint/glaze the wall or hang the original art choice
install the air vents
and a few other little odds and ends
for the most part
it's a nearly complete project!
You are looking at my excuse to not
go to the gym to work out because
I imagine that I do my own version of the
stair stepper more here than I ever did there
my butt is sore most days
and about the same size either way
