I would be lying if I said that I did not already have a "FEW" projects on the go but, after a rather large martini and a very inspiring BLOG post, "My Foyer Staircase Reveal" by Daine at "In my own Style"....I felt that old familiar feeling of uncertainty mixed with excitement. Could my stairs look as wonderful as the one on the screen in front of me? I am thinking so! And not only that but my son said "you can do it" and he would help!

Since my husband was not home at the time, my "partner" and I took just a little "look see" under the carpet. It looked just like the "before" pictures of the BLOG that I was reading and I am thinking that, that is a good thing! So, here we sat, waiting for my husband to come home just to be sure that he would be okay with this idea. Well, we sat and sat and he was late, so....we started without him! While we were tugging away at the carpet and wondering just how many staples could there be...in he walked! I can not share exactly what happened next but.....

by 10:30pm we had 3 steps done! Not bad! I can so totally picture how BEAUTIFUL our steps are going to look. My husband on the other hand is not as visual. I will keep you posted!

Today is the morning after and I am glad that although slightly "tipsy" as my son tells me...
