they're coming along


Just wanted to show you were I was at with the stairs so far (the green stripe is painters tape). I found a color that's a pretty close match to the grain sack that inspired the colorway for the stairs.....you can see the inspiration here.

By adding the linen colored stripe, my wood floors blend nicely with the stairs now. I think I'm really going to like the combination of white, linen and blue on the stairs.

More to come soon!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Andrea,

    The stairs are looking good. We have 4 sets of stairs {basement, main to second floor, back to second floor and the second to third floor} all of them are bare wood, so I need all the help I can get! You are always such an inspiration.

  12. I love this idea. I have often thought of painting stairs, but am sure my dogs would scratch the heck out of the surface on me. Your ideas are so inspirational! I recently painted my kitchen cabs and used the Ben Moore just like you said. I love them! I also put on a mocha stain in the details of the wood to enhance depth. I haven't posted any photos of it yet b/c I'm waiting for a day when the natural light is perfect (it's been so dreary around here lately)...and then of course, I have to style and buy flowers, etc. Regards, A
