I gave the stair rails a coat of polyacrylic so they will blend better with the floor. They can be installed now. And we bought a 2' x 4' piece of 3/4" plywood at the lumber yard on Saturday that now needs to be painted green. It's to replace the quarter inch board under the house; it is too flimsy to provide proper support.
Oh ... I bought a bottle of liquid starch today. I'm going to use it to hang the kitchen wallpaper. I'm thinking about getting to the wallpaper ... really.
