Finally the Attic stairs

If you have not followed along with the attic renovation and want to catch up, you can see it here

It started with a hole in the ceiling

and here

The Attic

The attic stairs have been on the bottom of the TO DO list pile for a very long time. That does not mean that they haven’t been thought of.

Searching options is so fun!

This one stopped me in my tracks.

I love it.

I can do this!

The stairs were originally supposed to be carpeted.

My life……I changed my mind.

The wood used for the stairs is for carpet.


The day arrived to begin

Each stair and riser were sanded, vacuumed and washed.

Prep is the hardest part. I just want to PAINT!

Prime. Always Prime.

White finish paint, coat 1

White finish paint, coat 2

We taped. Yes I had help. THANKS MOM!

We taped some more

And then we taped some more.

If only I were an engineer.

The landing took me so stinking long to tape.

Gray paint for the WIN!!!

Do you think we used enough tape?

The almost final step was me and a tiny paintbrush fixing any wonky parts.

Three coats of poly


Look how pretty!!!!


A little hard word and some paint is all it took.

On to the next project!
