I confess. It's scary. Here's what we're working with.
The water is from when we moved Ancient Maytag.
This is what Mr. and Mrs. Maytag stare at ... there is more in the basement, I just didn't take a picture.
This is the stairway down to the good, bad and ugly parts. Eventually there will be kickplates and a storage closet behind the stairs and accessible from the laundry area. The paint will be stripped and the wood stained. Eventually.
I confess. I hate the "Other" side. But Mr. and Mrs. Maytag inspire me to make it better and this we shall do. Eventually.
