Come sit with me for awhile and see what I’m bringing to the table ….
I just heard someone say that they did the stairs this morning. Of course the designer in me asked what they did to the stairs, and was met with a look of surprise and then amusement. Then I realized they meant that they actually ran the stairs for exercise! Okay -.what can I say?
My reply? Oh that was simple. Yes of course, I’m on my way to do my stairs. Ach semantics . . . sooo much fun . . . I love playing with words. As you can see here, I reallllly did my stairs. From top to bottom I ran, wraping, twisting, weaving, adding, subtracting, fluffing, and puffing until I too could triumphantly proclaim , “I ran the stairs today.”
Now I know you all can see most of what went into “the stairs,” however, there is always one or two things tucked here, and there waiting to be discovered. Take a look again to see my little angel nestled quietly on one of the steps. A birds-eye view from the top can easily be seen in the second photo.
I admit that I’m a lighting fanatic and love using mini-LED lights, up-lights, down-lights, and spotlights here, there, and pretty much everywhere.
To keep this stairway from looking matchy-matchy, rigid, store bought, or just downright contrived, I did what I am always preaching; I dug deep into my closets. After culling as many treasures, bits and pieces, and tongue-in-cheek surprises from around my house I did what I too set out to do – I ran the stairs today.
