Basement Stairs: Before

This weekend's project: Paint the stairs leading to the basement. 
Also the little hallway at the top of the stairs that joins the kitchen to the back door. 
This area has never been done in 50 years.  Today's the day.  
 Yes, behind the 'horrid wall of coat hooks'
 french doors have been hiding.
They've been covered for some time.  Crazy,  I know. 
 I had my husband take the weird wall hook board down this morning. 


Here's the stairs. Half of them are still carpeted, so I have to remove that and the staples before I can paint.

This is at the top. Back Door leading to the breazeway and garage. 
Painted this should be darling.
Such potential.



I have my work cut out for me.  But the wall and stairs are in good shape, no repairs to be made.

Just paint and lot's of it.
Wish me luck!
Send Diet Coke.
