Painted Stairs Update

It's been 3 years since we ripped off the ugly old carpet and painted our basement stairs...so I thought I'd give you guys a little update as to how they're holding up.

They've held up remarkably well considering they get lots of use....like laundry baskets being slid down them along with kids running up and down.

The paint hasn't chipped anywhere and other than a quick vacuum they've required no maintenance. I still love them and while it was a time consuming project....that at the time I was painting them I thought what in the world was I thinking....I would do it all over again.

I'm so excited to let you in on a little secret....Midwest Living Magazine featured our home in their May/June 2015 issue.

It was a wonderful experience that I'll remember always. I wanted to say a special thank you to Sara Diekelmann for her wonderful writing, Jay Wilde for his amazing photography and Tara Okerstrom-Bauer for finding me and styling my home so beautifully....Thank you!
