Stairwell Painting

So, I've been slaving away in the dust mines, painting the stairwell. You may remember the old stair to the third floor, as seen here:
harrock drywalled it, then I painted it white. But white is boring, so now it's getting frivolized into a paint garden. The ceiling got sponged with light blue "sky"
and the treads got painted light brown, with darker brown spongies.
The plain light brown would probably be fine for a nice sensible stairwell, without getting too silly, but the eventual plan is to add some stencils on the risers and along the edges, like so:
Some imagination must be used in that last one. :) More pictures when the stencils finally start going on.
