Stairs Update Version 2.0

It dawned on me this morning that I haven’t given an update of our stairs recently. Editor’s Note: Please refer to the post, “I’ve Made a Huge Mistake” for background info. To be honest, it dawns on me about 10 times a day. Every time I walk up or down the stairs. As of now, they still look like this:

If my bedroom wasn’t upstairs, I would probably avoid this area altogether. Don’t get me wrong...Mr. VB did a great job filling in the gaps between the steps and the wall, and honestly, they turned out better than I thought. And, the paint is holding up well, even with Allie and Marley constantly on my heels.

We just haven’t gotten up the energy to start painting the walls. My excuse is this:

I have visions of myself dangling precariously over the banister. Haphazardly applying the perfect shade of blue (Seaside Villa) to the walls. And the ceiling. And the stairs. I know there are tools out there to make this job easier. But, from past experience, I also know I am too lazy they don't work properly. Does anyone have any suggestions?


  1. hahahah. I am with you. Stairs painting is the worst. I have used a very very long pole in the past.

  2. I would go with a roller on a long pole for sure.
