So again you ask, how do you put it up there?
Don't try this at home kids. It makes my parents cringe every time they see this, but it makes me laugh. Well, now it does anyway. Thank goodness Jack is a sliver and weighs less than a feather. I'm not talking about a thick goose feather either--just one of those wispy, downy ones off a hummingbird.
Finished painting just in time for carpet. And for Claire to be born.
There's still some trim work that needs to be done in the stairway but with the carpet in and the walls freshly painted, we sometimes sit on the top step and think, "So this is what it's like to have a nice house." Someday soon, we hope. For now, we still keep our eye out for good deals and not much beats free.
Fresh carpet! Time to put the banister back on (Good thing too--Evie was slightly nervous about the banister-less stairs but was becoming much too bold for my liking).
