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.

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! 🙂
