I am so excited to be on Remodelaholic today, for my (drumroll
please) very first guest posting stint evaaah.
I was honored when Cassity asked me to share, because
Remodelaholic is one of my favorite places to look for great
other, k? I’m Anna, from Take the Side Street.
I started my blog last fall for a couple of reasons: First, I
like to talk a lot and writing is pretty much like talking. I’m a
fan of words, just ask my poor family. And second, we recently moved
into a home that was built in 1960 and I wanted to document all the
fun things I did (like ripping out wood paneling and carpet to the
chagrin surprise of my good natured husband).
hitting topics out there: decor, design, DIY, doughnuts, and dumb
stuff. That pretty much sums it up.
land of finished basements, so I have no grand foyer, just a wonky
little basement stairwell. I wanted to have a little fun with this
space since the only people who really ever see it are family members
(that is until we gut the basement, make it fabulous and charge
admission for tours).
intrigue, and wallpaper that were ruining my stairwell’s
of heights and bad patterns. I spent many a night watching
streaming episodes of old sitcoms on my laptop while peeling and
sanding and weeping.
below the carpet (okay, I had help with that part… scraping mastic
is hard, y’all).
over $10 lantern from my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
a yellow runner,
It was so, so worth it though! I love my new yellow stairs, and when I
have to walk downstairs to get to my dungeon of a laundry room (which
is very much in progress right now) I can’t help but smile.
Thanks for much to Cassity for having me on her blog today,
and also thanks to you fabulous readers for hanging in
there and learning about my project. If you’d like to read more about
my stairs, or if you want to see some other projects, hop over to Take the Side Street and
take a look around — and if you like what you see, or if you like
decor, design, DIY, doughnuts and dumb stuff as much as I do, I’d
love to have you follow along!
