Cool Idea: A Damask Makeover

Melissa from Sugar City Journal recently made a small change to her staircase that carries a huge visual impact. She scanned a damask fabric into the computer, then digitally enhanced it in PhotoShop. After printing the pattern on paper, she glued the sheets together, laminated them, and then used Modgepodge to glue them to her stairs.

Melissa says, "If you look closely when walking up these stairs, you might see a few familiar faces hidden amidst the damask. A simple way to bring a smile, as I walk up and down these stairs, one hundred times a day."

Great work! I love the surprising pattern on the staircase; I'm almost wishing I had one to walk up every day, just so I could enhance it as Melissa did.
