Here is my vision:
|From Thrifty Decor Chick's blog, her staircase|
|My carpet is just gross|
|See, the carpet is "level" with the wood on the side (those are my dogs marks there you see)|
|See white trim higher than black stairs (mine would be brown)|
My crazy thought is lets just rip up the carpet and I'll do it and make it look decent. If we hate it, well we re-carpet it later down the road.
My poor husband. I don't know HOW he puts up with me.
So, I started pulling back the carpet to see what I was dealing with.
My wooden stairs do not nearly look like the mess she had. In fact, they looked pretty decent to me.
|This is not my BEST visual. Please don't mind my UGLY tile. I can't do anything about that now.|
I want to get this done, but I want to do it right. But I want to get this done, like NOW. The war rages inside of me, and in the meantime I can't think of anything else but THIS PROJECT. Can you say OCD? It's maddening I tell you, just maddening!
