Hallways: A Bit of Progress

The Stairwell is Underway

I just got to thinking - I didn't include any "before" pictures in the initial post for this project.  That's probably because - once again I don't have any!  This is the closest I have.

This green was applied in around 1997, and was part of the initial move-in phase here at 173.  Back then I didn't keep track of paint brands or colors, so I really have no idea what it is.  The color was very nice back in the day, but as all things go - it was (finally) time for a change!

Getting old is a fascination thing. The older you get, the older you want to get. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today I made a little more progress.  It's a funny thing, in my middle-aged years (ok, who's kidding who?  I'm 54 years old - can I really expect to live to 108?), anyway - I've found myself less than excited about standing on a plank mounted on a windowsill and a ladder at the top of the steps.  Be that as it may, I'm doing it, and the stairwell is under way!

Here's another angle - really not that far above terra firma but geeze - less than thrilling!

And the view looking down:

Now time for two of the most boring pictures ever posted anywhere:

The plaster in the corner at the top-most part of the wall (of course) had cracked over time, so I took care of that today.

Ha!  Told you they were boring!  Well, I suppose this is as good a spot as any to register the wallpaper so I'll know later what brand, etc was used.  Also boring, but not quite as bad as above!

Now, don't we feel better?

It's paintable wallpaper, I've never used it before, but thought it would be nice to change the color without having to re-paper!  The one flaw I find with this kind of wallpaper is that it's very difficult to trim when it's wet, otherwise it's a very forgiving paper.  Thank for bearing with me on this post - they can't all be exciting!  LOL
