As a disclaimer: as a mama, my productivity (in terms of house projects) has gone way down with each baby.
That’s why I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest. I love so many ideas that I find, but then I want to do them! And lets be honest.. who has a few extra hours a day to find and execute projects off Pinterest? In a dream world one (of many) vacations Ryan & I would take each year would be a week at home (just the two of us) getting house projects done. My husband looks hot with a hammer, paintbrush, or saw in hand. For real.
One of the projects I’ve pinned involves our staircase. I snapped the first picture of it last week. Sorry its blurry. I’d go back and retake it, but the project is underway! A white banister with little kids and dirty hands is a bad idea.. or with kids that find pens and like to “draw” you pictures. On the banister.
Home Depot sells a tester size of paint now for $2.99. I picked up one in “Spiceberry” BEHR last week. After a couple hours, our banister got a three dollar upgrade. Next I need to redo the white paint and maybe even the stairs.. if we haven’t sold by then..
