The Great Stairway Makeover of 2012

It’s been a while since I’ve done a home improvement post. It’s probably because my home hasn’t really improved in a while. It’s a bit stagnant. Like the scary pool when we moved in. Stagnant. Remember what that looked like? Click here for a little reminder…..

One evening I was going through old photos. I decided it’s silly to only hang the newest, latest, greatest photos. I have some fabulous pics of the kids when they were babies and I was an actual heifer, errr….heffer… I have family photos from eons ago that belong on my walls. I also have all these walls with NOTHING on them.

Solution: Put pictures on walls.

Problem: All my old frames are from other houses with the color matching the wood in each house…oak or maple mostly.

Our current house, mostly old and moldy, doesn’t really have a “color” associated with it. I have however, painted many of the walls, mostly tan/brownish tones. Oh, and I painted the front door red. And I have painted most of the trim white.

So, in my garage, I have a plethora of paint.

***IDEA!!!***

I dug out all the frames, and went wild. I painted about 30 frames a variety of colors, all from the leftover wall paint.

I was so excited to have all these fun frames that now matched this house perfectly. I decided I was putting them all up in this massive collage type setting. I was torn on the location until I glanced at my UGLY barren stairway. PERFECT!!!

Then I glanced at the UGLY BARREN stairway again. EWWW.

I have avoided this area for a reason.

DIR – TAY.

The walls were scraped and scuffed. The paint was old and dirty. The handrails were gross and 80′s…. UGLY.

This then naturally led to a complete stairway makeover. I had to borrow one of those fancy ladders that bend and fold and twist all about in order to accomplish this.

I also had ALWAYS wanted to write on the back wall of the stairway.

Though it is not complete, take a look at the transformation.

Old (from waaayyy back):

This is now such a fun central focus of the house. You can see this hallway from so many places in the house.

I love it. I can’t believe I waited so long to do it.

I am not completely done with the writing on the wall, but it’s a good start! In case you are wondering, I used chalk to lightly draw lines, then write the words. Fruit of the Spirit yo!

By the way, the red I used on the back wall is called California Cabernet. How AWESOME is that!

So…It’s not done yet. But, it’s close enough for me to update you all. Since I am all whiney and complainy while doing these projects, I’m always telling people that I will post the before and after pics really soon.

Although its not totally done….here is the gist of it!

BEFORE!

Notice how the window is off centered….tricky! Sneaky little contractors thought that would make for a GREAT feature in a bedroom…right?

I know, I know….your jealous of the pink flower wallpaper border, but it just didn’t match my…. ummmm….nails.

So, ya, it had to go bye bye.

I spent DAYS TSPing and primering the trim and molding….because this house has the stuff EVERYWHERE. Doors, floors, ceilings….. EVERYWHERE.

This is approximately what I looked and felt like every day for at least a week.

Tooo many paint fumes…..

So, here is what I did after removing the wall paper…..

  • Painted the trim, molding & door white
  • Painted most of the walls a light blue
  • Painted the wall behind the bed a blue that is 2 shades darker than the other blue.
  • Spray painted the floor vent and ceiling vent
  • Centered a curtain rod above the bed (to hide off centered window)
  • Made curtains from my FAV IKEA material
  • Made curtains for the sliding glass door
  • Sewed patches of the IKEA fabric on curtains for the slider (Still need to finish these curtains…I can’t really sew straight, so it hinders my excitement to get them done!)
  • Made a throw pillow cover from the IKEA fabric
  • Took the last remnants of the fabric and wrapped them around cardboard and hung on the wall.
  • Printed 2 12×18 prints of me and mah hubs from Costco (for only $2.98 each) and put them in frames from IKEA

 

  • Hubs put up a new ceiling fan.

And………..

Viola!

So…..there ya go!

It feels clean, new and huge now!

We LOVE it!  I have a few things I hope to do to complete the room…..but I’ll keep those to myself until I actually do them!

 

Nizzzaaaasssty! I feel it necessary to point out at approximately this point past the front door, my husband tried to turn around and walk back out.

He.  Had.  Seen.  Enough!!

Purdy, eh! Who go’s to the paint store and say, hmmmmm….I think we will go with that REALLY, REALLY DARK GREEN! Also, lets point out again, the awesome dark trim around the windows, the floor, the ceiling & of course the little port hole or whatever that awkward round thing is…. Again, we have a gigantic BEAM going across the room, this one has huge snails or something on each side. The old school looking gas wood stove set up was pretty scary to me as well….

This green was a BEAR! It took primer. It then took multiple coats of the wall color. LAMESAUCE!

But it was the 2nd thing I HAD to attack once we moved in.

So, with a little love and a LOT of labor, I got pretty outstanding results! We did the same white trim around all the windows, doors, floors and ceilings. I chose one shade darker for the two walls next to the brick area.  That shade is called Cocoa Cream. I also really wanted to have some walls with that name! ;o) I removed the snail things & I painted the beam with the other color, Butter Pecan.

Ignore the furniture, we haven’t bought new stuff since 1998…once we remodel, we want to furnish according to the brains of an actual interior designer!

But, I find it ironic that our furniture is dark green!!

And….I kinda like the fake wood stove thingy now…we heated the entire house all winter with it and haven’t had to use the furnace yet.

Uber-cheap awesomeness!
