In the previous post about painting, I shared how painting your mantel can dramatically update your home, this time it was our stairs!
Same as the mantel, our wooden stair case was a light color that, though is standard, isn’t as modern as I want our new home to be. So I painted it black!
(If you can see behind all my family on their tech devices, the stairs are light wood)
I think taping was the worst part here, because I had to tape around the top and bottom of every spindel AND around all those corners. A little time consuming, but in the end, I think it paid off… Here are the results of some painters tape and a bucket of black paint.
And just like the mantel, they were so pretty we incorporated the stairs into yet another Christmas card picture
So another small thing you can paint that can have a very dramatic effect. I think the best part is it’s similar to the expensive iron spindel look you see in many up-scale homes, but by just painting the wood black, you get an upscale effect – without the cost!
As always, if you have any question, leave it in the comments!
