Well it’s a little bit of progress. Painting the stairs is taking a bit more time than I thought it would. Bj came home from work and said, "Oh maybe you should paint the other ones white and it could be like piano keys." That is not the look I’m going for however. Oh and that pile of laundry in the distance? The washing machine was repaired after six weeks of waiting. I did one color load in cold water. Went to take out the clothes and they were steamy hot. Then tried to turn the machine back on and it’s broke again. Like seriously?
