THE BEST INSPIRATION


Painting-old-wood-stairs, ok, maybe not. but a girl can pretend, can’t she?! in all honesty, this might be one of the most dramatic makeovers we’ve done. not because the before is so different from the after (because if that’s the comparison, then our attic definitely takes the cake… or maybe our master bath… or heck, the whole house).nope, it’s dramatic for me because it. is. just. paint.. If you have another exit from the basement, begin painting at the top and work your way down the stairs. if the steps you are painting are the only access, paint alternating treads and allow them..., dream it, do it: how to paint a staircase paint the stairs in your house to make the hum-drum trip between floors a journey worth remembering..

Before i dive into the how-to, i’ve shown you these basement stairs of ours before. truth is, we’ve had to update a lot of stairs in our day, and the problem is, staircase renovations are almost always $$$.well, we didn’t have $$$ for this project. we had more like ¢¢¢., for the record, let me say this: painting your stairs is fairly easy, but very, very time consuming. this is not a quick weekend project. i highly recommend painting your stairs if you’re looking for a cheap facelift and/or to buy you some time until you can do a major stair remodel..

Over the weekend i tackled a project that’s been on the to-do list for far too long – repainting our main staircase. in the process, i was reminded of how much of a pain in the you-know-what repainting a staircase is, and i thought of five important tips for painting a staircase to share with you . . . tips that i wish i would have known the first time i painted this staircase., after the porch and deck were built, there was a lot of discussion as to how the pressure-treated lumber we used should be preserved. one school of thought was to let the wood “age" and then use a liquid sealer..

From nasty, old carpet to gleaming hardwood, i want to show you how we restored our original wood stairs in our 1906 farmhouse. you, too, can create your own little stairway to heaven., with old buildings such as my 130-year-old barn, water-blasting the loose paint is not a recommended practice. the high pressure of the sprayer can knock those old boards loose and infuse the bare areas of wood with water..

We can't think of a better way to return after a long, hard day at work than being greeted by these bright blue and yellow stairs from pufik.we love the faux carpet runner look created by the deep blue block coloring.
