Step by step

When parents of a young girl moved into their new home, they wanted to keep her safe on the stairs. Plans were to add carpet until mom was inspired by a photo online. She used her creative talents and love of books to paint the stairs. What a fantastic way to personalize their first home and pass along a love of reading to their daughter. BTW: mom added fine sand to tread paint to make it non-slip and the cost was far less than carpet.
