Alrighty, the stairs are STILL not finished! Top tip though for any potential stair painters; if you are going to paint your way down the stairs and the only accessible loo is upstairs, you might want to go first.
Yes the stair painting is dragging on. All I can say in my defence is that the staircase was in very poor condition before I began this.
Also I have been a bit naughty. I just love starting exciting new small jobs and I'm not so good at finishing long laborious jobs.
So, instead of actually cracking on with the stairs I thought, once the stairs are all white and gorgeous, the little table that sits in the corner of the stairs is just going to look shoddy and ruin everything. See how I talk myself into it being alright to start something new?
Here's the table in question...
I'm rubbish at remembering to take 'before' shots. I'm so keen to get stuck in.
As usual, here's my attempt at a 'before' shot. Excuse the first splotches of paint. Imagine they're not there.
Also please excuse the moshi monster infestation we currently have.
This table was picked up a few years ago from Oxfam in York. I always intended to paint it. I thought that with the white stairs, white floorboards on the half landing and the painted mule chest that I wanted a Scandinavian look. I'm a huge fan of antique painted furniture so I wanted to try and reproduce the look without the price tag.
Here we go...
Right, better crack on with those stairs...
