Here are the steps after painting them. SO much better but yet so..... BORING!
Wanna see Lilly's reaction to the boring steps?
Here it is...herumpfh that's puppy talk for "eh."
Lilly's opinion mattered and she was right, something had to be done to the risers, just way too much white. I came up with numbers, simple, rustic character, cheap. I hit up my Uppercase Living hook up Nancy and set to ordering the numbers. (If you haven't heard of or used Uppercase Living your life is suffering and you need to order something. Also, if you're at all OCD like I am you'll really love the application process, picking, peeling, centering, it's an OCD dream come true!)
Here are the steps after the addition of the numbers. I wasn't sure. I mean really do you need to know how many steps there are? I just kept thinking "this is odd," "people are really going to wonder about this one." Oh well, I like it and that's what matters right? You're supposed to say "right" here. Thank you. You also want me to stop talking so you can see the picture with the numbers don't you? Yeah, I thought so.
While it's not a HUGE difference, it's something and it gives the steps character.
I will admit to sitting and staring at the stairs wondering if I was crazy, if I wasted $17.00 on numbers, if people would think I was insane in the membrane. Then I saw this!
Those my darlings are the steps in Sarah Richardson's most current reno. Did I just hear you say Sarah who? Don't make me smack you around and make you watch HGTV, I'll do it. Sarah is the host of Sarah's House. Go. Watch. NOW.
I felt vindication. My idea wasn't so outrageous afterall! Yeah, yeah, her's ROCK and mine are still a bit "eh" but my idea wasn't that crazy afterall! See I could have an HGTV show too! Maybe. Ok. Fine. Maybe not.
I'm glad I have at least one fan, Lilly Bean had the following to say about momma's numbered steps.
That's puppy speak for "those are awesome!" She did patoot right after this, so maybe she wasn't so impressed afterall.
