Update 1.6.12

I have stairs!  Slowly but surely chugging along.  I have more work to do to get done with this weekends stuff but here is an update:



  1. Those stairs look ready for drawers. Any plans to put some sort of storage in there.

    Also, reading this post, I couldn’t help but remember the scene from “The Money Pit” when they finish the stairs and it makes Tom Hanks cry.

    1. They are going to be storage cubbies for blankets and things, I have some baskets that will slip in there and tuck everything away nice, my hope is that way it will still ‘feel’ a little more open than drawers. If it just ends up looking cluttered drawers are the plan. I feel a bit like that I imagine! Not so much money pit but the time pit! ALL of my spare time goes to this thing! I love that my brother snuck this in though and welded up the stairs while I was doing other things! 🙂 Thanks for the comment! 🙂

  2. hi macy
    the stairs are great…..
    are you sure you want to stain the wood a dark color?
    i love the light walls that you have and light wood would be gorgeous…..just a suggestion : )

    1. I have no idea what my ‘deal’ is, I have always had something against lighter wood, it always seems to yellow or something and I end up hating it. It won’t be an extremely dark color but maybe like a medium walnut sort of color. I still want it to look like wood and not compete too much with my [dark] tile… so mid-tone. 🙂 Thanks for the double-check, I can’t tell you how many times I have reconsidered and recalculated because of comments from people! It’s SUPER helpful!
