Stairway to ?

Constructed from scratch (paint stir-sticks), painted and installed.
Next, the door frames.

Here are two of them (one up close; one in distance) glued and taped into place. I'll paint them after the glue has dried.

Another Potential Project

Our daughter and son-in-law found this "project" in a dumpster.  They are storing it until I can look at it closer.  They think it has a large, self-storing leaf that pops up in the center.  I'll be interested to see if it is all "here" and if it is repairable!  We seem to attract tables...

The Decorating Begins

All floors have been varnished.  Walls and ceilings primed and painted.  The bottom part of the attic wall is wallpapered.  I'll need to put a "chair rail" between paint and paper.  In the second story, you can see the room to our left has walls to paper (one unseen & the back, window wall).  The middle room is painted; the room to the right will have a piece of wallpaper "border" between the upper and lower parts.  The bottom floor (unseen here) will have a combination of paint and paper also.  All the wallpaper has been sitting in our stash, waiting to be used.
