My husband did my kitchen walls like these are done and I just love them, now I am working on him redoing the stair case to match this and I will be so happy. He is so gifted I just have to get him in the right mood to work on our house. What a beautiful staircase and love how the heighth allows for all the pictures on the wall. Just about perfect look to me. J. Poppen
