I have to wear painting clothes. As you can see, I am a very messy pinter. (These are in fairly good condition, actually. I have an entire wardrobe, both winter and summer, in more than one size. There are others in worse shape.)
Here's the boot shelf. It is at the back door, on the side of the stairs going down to the basement next to the furnace.
It has been ugly since the day we installed it.
I wanted some colour--and I wanted something I could clean in a snap.
I knew just what to use. The paint we had left over from this failed project, many years back.
From the Spring Cure, 2008
Yes, the old red trunk. We still have it--it's in the basement (naturally!) and we still have half a can of that red enamel paint.
While I was down there, I also finished off this area:
I stopped painting there during the laundry room make-over in the fall of 2011 because the old dresser was in the way. But now that the chemical cabinet is there and on castors, I could finally finish painting it.
Only, you, me, and whomever needs that stuff from under the stairs will ever know!
I've other projects planned for the stairwell, but for now, it's another couple of Anti-Procrastination Project done.
