Never have I lived in a house that had (in my eyes) such beautiful stairs like the house we've moved into now. It's what sold this place to me. That and of course the fact that the property is right beside the water. But you get my drift, it is somewhat the only redeeming feature of the house itself.
The first picture is how it was when we bought the place. The second one is after removing the ghastly dark wallpaper and a giving a lick of white paint on the walls and ceiling.
It wasn't at the front of my thoughts to decorate the banisters till I finished the tree and found out I had some faux pine garlands left over from years past.
I attached the lengths to the balustrade and trimmed with a few baubles and ribbons. It is my first attempt to create a christmassy atmosphere on a stairway and I am rather pleased with how it turned out.
Thank you for visiting. Comments are greatly appreciated.
