a day in the life of k.

stef. love love LOVE the stairs. super jealous that you are so fab lately with so many projects going at once. i am impressed. think i will not do my stairs because i am sort of still in trouble for the striped wall incident. which was not totally my fault because t and l helped me.

we had cabin fever because it has rained so much this week. but… now all the plants are super green and we stare at them. yep. we look out the window, banging on it occasionally and also grunting. j put up a swing for k! he loves it. Image     

oops… is that the wagon from your wedding? the one that you were missing? how did that end up in my backyard… hmm. i should probably give that back to you. but it just looks so cute with our plants in it. i am older so how about i keep it.

oh, and here is k standing guard at the window. watching for daddy even though he won’t be home for 3 more hours.Image

our fuzzibunz are all the clothes we need lately! and mommy keeps making him wear this hat he got for christmas because she knows his head won’t fit in it much longer. have to sneak it on his head though, because he just wants to pull it off and either a) bang it on things or b) eat it.

k is becoming an incredibly mobile little sucker. the dog dish and daddy’s stereo are the two main areas of interest. however, this might be because mommy scolds when we touch it. pretty sure that’s the only reason those things are fun. favorite toys today: a wisk and a potato masher. k misses his auntie tess so much!

oh, and that’s my new white table, that used to be the color of the chairs that are not-so-white that i have not painted yet. i keep starting new projects without finishing ones first. that’s me. buhbyes.

stairway to heaven… or just heavenly stairs.

beck. just finished the stairs. rookie blogger move #1: forgot to take a before picture. fiddle sticks.

here is an idea of what the walls and everything looked like before

Image

and… here is what the stairs now look like!

Image

Image

ok, so here is what you will need:

Image

one roll of this. (remember: green is good. blue is bad. in painters tape that is.)

Image

a can of this… or two if you are doing the walls too.

Image

this stuff is addicting. make sure you give yourself a time limit or you will never stop finding spots!

Image

this to scrape the walls for a distressed white wash look.

Image

a litte bit of this for the inside stripe on the stairs. i went with behr “sparkling spring”

Image

and if you paint like me. lots of this.

disclaimer: james- i am in no way responsible for beck’s sudden urge to rip up your carpeted stairs and do this.
