Initially I was just so in shock that I wasn't even angry. Thoughts that ran through my head:
2. Thank you Lord that they are Basement stairs with no carpet!
3. I HAVE to get a picture of this.
4. If we weren't moving, I'd totally leave it, what a cool pattern! (I'd call it "Paint-erist")
5. Where/how do I start to clean up??
Pools of paint just dripping down the stairs...
I ended up grabbing a metal bowl from the kitchen and using my hands to just "scoop" the excess paint off of each step into the bowl. Then I used almost an entire roll of paper towel, wiping up as best as I could, and then a really wet cloth to wipe each step off. The further down I got, the more dry the paint had become, so there is still some paint spots at the bottom I couldn't get off.
Part way through the messy clean up
Might as well smile. It Was epic. =)
