Craftaholics Anonymous – Steps to Transform a Stairway

Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous did a great job decorating her stairway and creating an fun display for pictures. Here is her blog post:

Here’s how my staircase looked for 2.5 years. So sad and depressing!




I wanted to put family pictures in my staircase, but I didn’t want to spend the money on frames (I’m rEaLly cheap!). The crib spring was given to me by a good friend and when I saw it, I knew exactly what I’d do with it!





Since there’s a chance we might be moving in the spring, I didn’t want to paint just to have to paint again. But the cream and white color scheme was killing me!! Someone suggested framing fabric and I loved the idea. It added color, was cheap {I had most of the fabric already}, and was easy to do. The main fabric is Robert Kaufman’s “Fruit Basket” in case you were wondering.
Before:




This is on the wall straight in front of you as you are going down the stairs.

Mod Podged G {for our last name}

The mini clothes pins.

The burlap frame.

This project took a lot longer than I had planned. Maybe that’s why I put it off for over 2 years! Decorating a staircase (on a dime) is tricky with the slant and having sooo much wall space to fill. Oh and let me tell you, it’s not easy taking pictures of a staircase either!!

Linda you did a fantastic job. It’s so fun! I love the framed fabric – something I’ve had in my inspiration files for a long time. Thank you for showing it off! 🙂
