A mother has revealed how she redesigned her old staircase with a coat of paint after drinking half a bottle of red wine on her first night alone in 10 years.
The Canberra woman said she decided to engage after her husband took their three and six year old daughters away for a weekend.
The woman documented her DIY stair transformation on social media as she called on fellow mothers to confirm whether or not she made the wrong decision.

“My husband took my daughters this weekend, so I’m home alone. So what should I do on my first night alone for about a decade? she said in an ironic post in a Facebook group.
“I drank half a bottle of red wine and painted the stairs. My husband is going to kill me. Please tell me they look good. ‘
“If you don’t hear from me after Sunday, I’m buried in the backyard.”
In a follow-up post, the woman pointed out that the stairs in the snaps looked different because she was ‘not sober enough’ to take the ‘before’ shot, so she took a similar one in her house to give everyone an idea of what it used to look like.
“Two different stairs in the photos. I was not sober enough to take a “before” photo. We have three of these stairs in our split level, so I’m going to be busy today, ”she said.
Then she was bombarded with questions about whether she had sanded her stairs for painting, to which she replied, “I certainly sanded them.”
“Errr … I think I definitely sanded them … um … I definitely plugged in the sander and it looks like it was used,” she added.
The woman said her kitchen looked like a ‘hardware store’ that ‘exploded’ into the house after taking out all the tools and appliances for do-it-yourself painting
The woman said her kitchen looked like a “hardware store” that “exploded” in the house after taking out all the tools and appliances for DIY painting.
She shared another update on Sunday after her family returned home saying: ‘[Husband] she likes. I am not a dead woman walking. ‘
For those who liked her paint color, she said she used ‘Taubmans Canyon Black’ for ‘anyone who wants to know the paint color responsible for my untimely demise.’
Her post has since been ‘liked’ more than 6,800 times, with hundreds of people praising her for doing ‘great’ work while ‘drunk’.
Others joked that she shouldn’t have told her husband about the makeover so she could “see how long it will take him to realize.”
