I'm finally getting ready to deal with the stairwell leading to my attic bedroom. I've been staring at this area for months on end with lots of ideas running through my mind, but I still haven't made a final decision. Then I thought, who better to ask for suggestions than the Apartment Therapy Community?.Since my pocketbook won't allow me to have this professionally taken care of, this will be a DIY project. Which leads me to my biggest problem — how am I gonna get to those high areas above the stairwell? I think I'm gonna borrow or rent one of those gorilla ladders and see if that works. Any other suggestions? Next, what should I do?
Here are the facts:
The peach color came with the house and drives me bananas, so it has to go.
I want it to be vibrant and punchy, but not overwhelming.
I want it to make the chandelier stand out and not compete.
The the bottom half is dark grey and white (which is staying) and should compliment the top half.
