Back to the stairs. They have been unpainted, unfinished pine and quite ugly for a while. I got tired or looking at them, so researched how to paint stairs. I've primed, painted two coats of the yellow border and one coat of the green. I need to paint one more coat of the green, then top it all of with urethane. I was trying to figure out how to make the paint more permanent. You can get deck paint, but it is oil-based and quite stinky (or so I believe). I was reading lots of information on the net, and one (or more) people said to top it off with urethane. Well, it works for hardwood, so why not paint. I know it will eventually scratch, but I'm OK with that. It certainly looks better than it did before. I guess any change is an improvement.
No quilting lately, but still, stuff is getting done.
