Companionway steps makeover!

Furiends I’m not sure if any of you have seen the state of my companionway steps recently. If you have, you’ve been too polite too say anything! They were in such a mess…

Messy and worn steps

Horrible old steps

They were worn and messy and really really ugly. The whole area looked unloved and uncared for. So we started Nocturne’s interior mini-makeover right there. Mum was tasked with pulling the old carpet off, finding a new suitable carpet and cutting and fixing in in place. I think she did quite well.

New pretty steps

Space is off of course limited aboard, so we’ve put back the box that fits snugly underneath because it’s full of bug sprays, lanterns and other really useful things, but I don’t think it looks as cluttered or messy as before.

Companion way

I’m very happy with the end result.

New step covers

Inspecting the new steps!

This is just one of the small projects that is drastically changing Noccy’s appearance ready for our best summer yet. Dad is doing a PAWESOME job outside and I can’t wait to show you the transformation that’s been underway with all of the varnishing.

Bisous, Bailey

  4. A definite and rather needed improvement. You shouldn’t have let them get away with not doing it sooner!
