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


and… here is what the stairs now look like!



ok, so here is what you will need:


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


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


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


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


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


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.
