Stairway Renovation

We finally addressed the dark stairway that goes to our fully finished basement.  I did not like the dark wood, and made many feeble attempts at trying to make it look good. We decided it was time for a change.  We painted the pine wood white.  It took two coats of primer and one coat of paint. I was nervous when we did it, because it was such a big change and wasn't sure if I liked it.  I had thought about white washing the pine, but thought it would be to messy of a project. Tom finished building and putting up a picture ledge two days ago, along with putting up some new lighting.  The result is pure awesomeness.  I really like the modern look and feel that this gives off.

  I painted that red cross art today.  Tom hasn't seen it yet, hope he likes.

Here is the before picture.

Here it is with a coat of primer

Here are my attempts at trying to make it work.

It wasn't happening.  This new look is so bright and cheery.  The lighting really makes it even more spectacular.  So happy with it!  It even makes the hall of fame look better too.  I am not sure if I hung the clock too low.  Any opinions on that?  I could sure use some.  I keep going back and forth on the placement.
