Unfortunately Phil's not keen on this idea....
oh! he likes the decorated stair risers but not the oak clad stair treads that l'd like to install...aesthetically it's not a problem he loves the look but says it would be far too noisy!
but don't they look fabulous...

  1. Can't wait to see what you do. I have some stairs that need some work and we're rather up in the air about what to do with them.

  2. Hi Sharon...if Phil didn't do shifts there wouldn't be a problem but l'm up when he's trying to sleep not good to have noisy stair treats! day may be x

  3. I admire the valuable information you offer in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and have my children check up here often. I am quite sure they will learn lots of new stuff here

  4. You are lucky you have a husband who wants to do improvements. Mine has no interest, and it is I alone who dreams of new designs and improvements!!

  5. This is a wonderful idea. I see both sides, but I think if you go fairly neutral with light tones, it would turn out Fab.

  6. Love the oak treads but I saw some stairs just this morning though I can't remember where that had different sayings stenciled on them all the way up. I really liked it. Maybe Phil would go for that? Have a great weekend Suz!

    Hugs XX

  7. Yep, wonderful!

  8. Love it...def a brilliant idea, I will bear that in mind when it comes to decorating the risers in my house...thanks

  9. Love those stairs. We have no stair carpet at the moment as it had moths in it. We are waiting to see if any moths materialise in the Spring, but I wouldn't mind not replacing the carpet if I could have a staircase like that. It is noisy though if you wear shoes in the house.
