A (very) quick attic update...

We've been busy with birthdays, spring cleaning, & general summer fun in the past couple weeks as the weather has been beautiful.  FINALLY!

In between all of that, I've squeezed in a little bit of work on the attic.  Thought I'd share a few quick snaps of the progress!

I added some white pom trim to the bunk curtains.  Love it.  Can't ever go wrong with pom poms.  (Well...pom pom trim anyway.)

Dad working hard hanging up the stair rails.  $20 on Craig's List...a lot of elbow grease...& the satisfaction of reusing something that would have ended up in a landfill.  (The railings are spray-primed in the picture below.  Mom & I spent the better part of the weekend brushing them by hand.  Not a fun task.)

Almost done painting in this picture.  Black posts & horizontal rails, white spindles.

Finished stair rails & old wood floor.

And last but not least...the icing on the cake...I started painting the floor late last night!  I'm in LOVE.  My office will soon be set up in that little nook.  Can. Hardly. Wait.

That's it for now!  I'll try to post some non-iphone shots later this week, but we've got a big 5th birthday party at our house this weekend that I'm busy prepping for, so I can't make any promises!

Thanks for hanging in there for this massive attic project.  It's taken us waaaaaaay longer than I ever expected...but I also love the space way more than I anticipated...so I suppose it's all worth it in the end!

Still on the list:
  • Finish painting the floor
  • Finish closets
  • Under eave storage doors
  • Knock out stairwell doorway & repair
  • Random odds & ends
