I’ve taken photos up there at different times of the day, on cloudy days, on sunny days – and the color never seems to be completely accurate in my photos. Oh, well, today I’m going to show you the results of the stairway remodel, regardless!
And stay tuned – I’m announcing the winner of Kirkland’s $100 Gift Card giveway at the end of this post.

I like it! I may need to hang it higher, but I think it could work. I promise I’ll show you the rest of upstairs next week. Ok, now it’s time to announce the winner of the Kirkland’s gift card:
Congrats to Amy A!
