i hate masking tape

The stairs are completed, or at least they should be if it wasn't for masking tape and the little good that it does to keep the paint job clean.
After seeing lots of lovely images for papered stairs we decided to give it a go. The result is fantastic and it really adds the wow factor when you walk into the house. However, I will now have to spend hours with a teeny brush painting over the areas where the grey snuck under the masking tape and went on the rest of the woodwork. Well that isn't everything, the 'stump' still has to be sanded and painted white ...

This shows the during, I totally forgot to take a before and no words could describe how truly awful they were.

Overall we are really pleased, the 'fixing' of the paint will have to be added to my things to do in 2009.
