First Summer Project

I figured since I'm going to have time on my hands this summer, there are a few things I could start doing. Some of those things are making the bed every morning, doing the dishes each day, keeping the house clean, as well as starting projects that we've been wanting to do but haven't had the time. The first one, the stairs. When we first moved down to the basement, we had 3 days to paint the whole place and get our stuff down here. Needless to say, there were some things we didn't finish. Painting the hallway with the stairs is one of them. So for the last two days, I remedied that. The pictures don't show how awesome it looks, but this is what I did.
The is the "before" picture:
Then I spent hours filling in all the holes, scrapes and gouges with Spackle and then spent even more hours sanding it all down:
Then finally today, I finished it. Doesn't it look so much better??
I have a pretty lengthy list of things I'd like to do to the basement this summer to fix it up a bit. We'll see how much I get done. If anyone is bored and wants to come help, let me know.
