banister ball























i like plain and simple, but i can't keep my hands off things. so i end up getting things froo-frooed up sometimes by accident. i take a lot of pictures, so it is nice to go back and see what i've been doing to the place. my stairway has really blossomed in the past few months. first, i painted my hall silver sage. i loved it, but then i wanted to try a wallpaper effect, so i stenciled on cream acrylic paint in fleur de lis diamonds. then, to top it all off, i added a ball - it just screwed on - and painted my banister. i also put some lace panels on the french doors to keep the back of the house private from the front door. right now, i am looking for a good deal on a sisal runner for the stairs. i like the wood, but i just want to add a little something to them so they don't look forgotten. i think then, i just might be finished with the stairway hall. but maybe not :)
