For years I’ve been working on this staircase once in a while. It’s been my bad conscience for so long and I always apologise for how it looks when someone visits us. Today when a friend, who works with commercials, saw the staircase, she said it was the most beautiful she has ever seen. Hard to believe, but if more people say it is beautiful (which they actually do) I might believe them. So perhaps I won’t paint the staircase after all.
