Here is what my stairs look like:
Unfortunately I did not remember to take a picture from the bottom of the stairs before I started painting, but they were all made from the wood you can see. They are old wood that desperately needed a makeover. As you can see in this picture, my husband is taping them for me. 🙂 I decided to sand down the tops and stain them and then to paint the kick plates white. I’m going to show you how I painted the kick plates.
First I cleaned all the stairs so no dirt would get in the paint. We taped the stairs so we wouldn’t get the paint on anything else. Then I grabbed the paint I bought from Lowe’s (any wall paint will do) and set to work.
Doesn’t it look so fresh and clean? I love it already and it isn’t even finished yet! Stay tuned for more updates, I’m moving on to staining the rest! 🙂 What color would you stain the tops?
