I say po-ta-to, You say po-tat-o
A little sneak peak at our scary man of the stairs. Despite his age and what he has been through these past few months, he is looking quite handsome to me.
The latest decision to be made is what to paint the stair risers. For those obsessed with staining everything in site: yes,they need to be painted. I want to paint them black - its a little bit unusual but the black will work nicely with the pale grey and dark stain of the stair treads. It will also hide ugly scuff marks better. And its not any sort of strange choice like orange or teal. So whats the problem? Mr. Limestone didn't have an opinion on this until our contractor and architect chimed in that the cream would be nicer. Now Mr. Limestone is literally insisting that they be painted cream.
Why is it that when I needed help picking paint colors, no one has an opinion but when I'm 100% sure then everyone has to chime in?
I used to believe that whenever I would say white, Mr. Limestone would say black just to drive me completely up a wall. But I was wrong. In fact, when I say black, he says cream! A world of difference.
Whatever the shade, its quite close to being done. We're both in total agreement that a good thing.
