I love the staircase but also hate it,does that make sense,
WHY I LOVE IT
1 Its quirky.
2 It has another small door to enter into it,
3 The treads on staircase are nice, all proper wood
WHY I HATE IT
1 Its tiny
2 Its a bit dark
3 The corner you turn to go up i always feel I have to duck my head but I don't,but then I'm just a shortie 5ft tall,notice old measurements there ,I still work in feet and inches ,shame on me.
WOOPS going on a bit there
4 Part of the landing was taken up for the bathroom.
Note to self do not complain Andrea you need a bathroom unless I want to go out back and see if our well has any water noooo.
Oh and how could forget to add to my hate list, THE WALLPAPER
So when we went in December first on our list was to get the wallpaper off ,two days later with both of us working with an electric wallpaper steamer finally we got it all off.
It must have been super glued on ,never have we had such trouble taking wallpaper off.
Then a full day of me sanding it all down then the cleaning up I was wrecked at the end .
After all that work I think its safe to say I'm leaning towards the hate side of the staircase.
We did finally get two coats of white paint on all the walls but more on that in the next post.
