So it's no secret I love abandoned houses. High in the hills above the Strip sits this poor old lady. Mold, mildew, and chandliers is all she wrote. There was no breaking and entering, just entering, in the dark, carefully.       Click to enlarge

Have you ever awakened one morning and thought, '' I need more blue ''. The color blue that is. Well, I did  this morning. Let me explain, so here we are looking at the stairs leading up to the master bedroom, bath, and deck.

Now we have the color choices and the formula, crazy I know more blue, Lord have mercy, enough already. So I thought, ok Kevin, you've done this many years ago to a client's staircase and loved it, and you've seen it a million times in Mexico, not to mention in pictures. But kids, it's a whole different story when it's your own staircase.

Now, what do you think?  If your wondering if I got the color blue out of my system, I did, at least until next week.
