You know what they say...

...Great minds think alike. In this case it's myself and one of the sisters who write Sugar City Journal, and we're thinking about stairs. We seem to have taken the same approach to creating something lovely from something massively boring. However, she made hers in a completely different way from mine.

Instead of using wallpaper, she scanned a damask fabric onto her computer and hid little photos of her family in the pattern. She then printed it out on regular paper, laminated it and glued it to the stairs with Modgepodge. As the stairs look to be properly varnished hardwood, she's a lot braver than I was. James and I were lucky in that our stairs were crap to begin with, so we pretty had a blank canvas when we started. Well done Sugar City!
