As we all know tax season usually brings on the home improvement projects. Not that I have a lot of extra time during tax season, but the overtime pays for the bills. I’ve hated my front steps since I bought the house but planned to have them painted when they painted the house. For some reason they didn’t paint the steps last summer when they did the house. I looked into painting them and the options of something that didn’t scrape off were limited. Last weekend I got to thinking about the back splash wall I did at mom’s house and decided to give it a try. Here are the before steps. Ugly – I don’t miss that peach color on my house. The bottom one is the “work in progress” picture. Unfortunately it rained all day Sunday so I wasn’t able to grout the steps. Once I grout everything I will paint the facing of the steps black to match the canopy over the door. Hope it turns out ok. Looks a mess now but I haven’t done the clean up and final touches.
