I seem to do this to myself every dang year—glutton for punishment.
26 days to Christmas and I’m taking on an ambitious project list. What can I say, I’ve been SO busy
it’s NOW or –never-.
I added board & batten to both stairwells and always intended to run it down the guest bedroom/bath hall…
w e l l, guess what day it is!
Btw~ mom’s curio below is such a beast to clean every Christmas, but needs to be done (at least ONCE a year)!
It contains family treasures passed down from as far back as the early 1800’s. There’s also an 1860‘ish Top Hat in there that belonged to my G-G-grandmother’s brother. Check THIS off the list now!!!
Anyway, getting back to the hall. . .
The top glazing coat also made it super easy to clean any offending areas with a damp cloth. But it really needed an update—NOW!
I had 3 fresh gallons of brushed suede made up for the living room and will use it in the upper hall too! The “suede” gives a much softer feel than just using FLAT paint. *It’s painted using a cross-hatch pattern, and depending on color, really looks more like a soft-worn velvet.
