DIY in progress at Town Mouse House – I am trying to give our Laundry/Mud Room a face lift.  Stage One is underway.  I am painting the stair railing.  What?  Paint wood?  YES!  It must coordinate with the wrought iron railing in the front part of the house, which is black and white(pardon the sneakers):

Now the wood railing(this is what it looks like on wash day):

Won’t that look better with a fresh coat of paint?  Here it is with a coat of primer:

The other things to do in here include painting the walls and trim and devising a better system for organization.

To be continued….

As a bonus, here is this year’s picture of the gorgeous waterfall up by Country Mouse House:

Hope you are having a lovely summer and getting a few projects done!
