"You know," I said, "If we'd just repaint that stairwell and replace the carpet, it would look a whole lot better."
Not only did everyone in the house agree, Munchkin #1 suggested it was a project we should start that very day. By Friday evening we had removed all the old carpet and repainted. My photos don't really do it justice, but I love the stairwell now. In fact, unlike many remodel projects, which leave me feeling at least the need for a year's recovery time before I begin the next room, this one has me itching to get out the paint and transform the remaining rooms in our house (those we have not already tackled).
