Stairway/Landing Refresh

Stairway/Landing Refresh

It's official.

Our upstairs now looks like an entirely different house than our downstairs. Which is annoying, but good -- progress, baby!

This was the quickest refresh we've done so far. All it took was a weekend!

Here's what we did:

  • ceiling: smoothed, primed, painted
  • painted the walls
  • painted the trim (6 doorways..ugh)
  • replaced the light fixture
  • replaced the switch and cover

As always, here's the glamour shots:

Here's a breakdown of items:

Wall paint: Silver City by Behr Marquee

Trim paint: Maui Mist by Behr (it's also the same white we used in our master and wood room walls)

Light fixture: Oil Rubbed Bronze LED Mushroom Flushmount

What do you guys think? Easy-peasy and soooo much better. That grey is also going to be used throughout the downstairs as well. That way we'll have a very nice flow to our small home and go from browns all over the place, to some cooler neutrals to brighten the space.
