Little things - like little stairs to the attic/the Bun's room. They were cute. They were red. They were in horrible shape.
So I busted out the wood filler:
Lots of wood filler...
Then we* picked a color. I'm not 100% in love with this color, but it's an improvement and not terrible. I still need to roll on another coat and caulk a few cracks.
But, it makes for a happy little view. And it looks more purple from above than it does from below. Small mercies. The pink thing on the left is our little DIY handrail. It's rope and some rope grommet things from a rope supply house. Did you know there was such a thing as a rope supply house? I did not. I'm learning every day here, people. I think the intended use of the grommet thing is for boats, handrails on boats, which are made of rope...
So, you know... ahoy!
*We being the kid and I. Hence the purple. Left to my own devices I night have gone navy, but I'm not going to fuss about it. It's fine. The pink handrail, though, I may switch out for a more neutral color. Or at the very least something less neon.
