Oh my!!! I am in total swooning love. I love everything about these...the colors, the quote...everything. What inspiring steps these are!!


sheer DELIGHT!


I canĀ“t B-lieve how cool they are! You just raised the bar, no, you DEFINED the ultimate cool personal home-decor! This is just incredibly inspiring!

Wow! These are totally awesome! I've long wanted to do something like this with my stairs, but I lack the painting talent you have. Love, love, love.

Shayna Butler

Perfect! Thanks for posting a pic of them up, I was so looking forward to it. I must say I think your version is the best of all the stair pictures you posted. Love the colors and artwork and your lettering. These are fabulous!

Kyles (Kylie Pepyat-Fowler)

OH WOW!!!! They are brilliant. I suddenly wish I had stairs in my house. :D


Love how the stairs are looking, what a fun project! 5 years later we still haven't finished the stairs in our garage which lead to my studio/big screen TV area. I have the sandpaper on one of the steps and it has been sitting there for a few weeks (months?!) I don't think that I could handle doing the painting with the risers installed but your project is sure inspirational. Have you moved into Vancouver??


So cute! Love the quote you picked out! Thanks for sharing with us.
