Painting on Click

I have been itching to get this stairway painted. It is the last place in the house that hasn't been painted since we moved in 4 YEARS AGO!
It was a little worse for wear with mystery stains and little girl's pen drawings. I had my little helper with me so after a hot click we loaded Olivia on the bus and delivered Dad some lunch.
Once I got home I decided to just tackle it.
I did it kind of backwards. We did all the low edging and then rolled about 90% of it before I stood at the top and looked at the far edges and thought-Oh Crap. I need a boy or at least some boy tools. This photo above is hardly showing it but the edges on the right and left are not done. So like any good butter knife wielding girl I made this contraption below. All it took was a broom, some tape and my paint brush. Straight out of 02536!
Laugh away suckers but it worked.

Ava is pretty proud of it too. Every time she walks up the stairs she talks about us painting it.
Another project done. Only 9,999 more to go.

I like your Aunt Jemima look. :) Good job. I hate painting.

Painting sucks. But it always freshens things up. And I too like the bandana.
