We are ever so slowly finishing up some Phase 1 projects. We really want to get the steps done -- we plan to paint the treads and risers and add a new runner. Andy cut out some of the carpet awhile back and a few weeks ago he finally had enough time to sand and degloss all of the existing wood. Since we're putting a new runner down we decided not to paint the entire step.
The sanding and deglossing was a dirty job, but after everything was cleaned up Andy started priming all of the bare wood, including the banister.
I promise that it will look better once we get the two different colors of paint in and get the new runner in place but this is a good start.
And tonight Andy started painting!
