Celebrating our Anniversary with a little DIY

Read and I just celebrated our 100 14th anniversary. Don't get me wrong, I adore my husband, but marriage is tough. We have been through a lot and grown as a couple and I can honestly say that I love him more today than the day I married him. 
Ok, enough with the cheesy love stuff.
 Thankfully, he still loves me too -- which can be hard to do. 
For example, this weekend, we left the kids with my mom and spent the weekend at Bald Head in our little house. 
We went out to dinner Friday night - very romantic (or so he was hoping). Until... I got home and decided that yes, our stairs needed a runner. What, is that not a typical way to spend your anniversary? 
 They are white and showing some wear. This place was built in the late 1970's and this stairwell leads to the twins room (once a loft and now enclosed). With summer and the rental season coming up, I couldn't possibly leave the stairs as is. I mean, come on, they are a hot mess. *Much like my husband once he found out or anniversary post-dinner plans involved some DIY and home improvements. 
Supplies for romantic evening: Wine

Supplies for DIY: Wine, primer, angled paint brush, flat paint brush, 2" painter's tape and paint (white, dark gray, light gray latex enamel). Once everything was taped off, it was easy. 
We  I am thrilled with the results. Read... well, not so much. 
Thankfully, there was a good basketball game on.

 Happy Anniversary to my sweet, loving (and patient) husband....
For better or for worse! 
Happy Monday
