The TV, that is.
The other day we were a little lazy and were watching football or something, eating guacamole and chips and apple pie for dinner...and this Home Depot commercial came on hailing us to get it going on with our projects. And, hello if they didn't show us one to get it on with. Painted stair risers. In Chevron, no less.
(Note that this picture is from the YouTube video, not the Home Depot How-To link at the end of the video - that one is too vertical a pattern. I aim for this in terms of proportion and angle.)
Now, you all know I am not a fan of the chev in general. It's done, I think. Over-used. But for a long skinny thing like a riser? The shape makes sense. And I have been lamenting the tired state of affairs that is our main stairs. So, it is ON. The paint and tape has been bought, the how-to video watched, the idea vetted by señor Holiday.
