Our Painted Stairs Reveal
This is our back staircase.
Way back in March, 2010, I did a post about the “before” stairs, with various painted stairs.
Since these steps only lead to the home gym over our garage, I thought it would be fun to do something a little out of the ordinary.
It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do…
I looked at a lot of different inspirational images, and eventually chose a hybrid.
It took me forever to get this project accomplished, and it’s still technically not done.
Our interior designer Lauren, helped me to narrow down my ideas, pick some paint colors and find a skilled painter.
I sourced the banister stair rails by using window hardware from Restoration Hardware and the rope is from my local hardware store.
However, now that I’ve seen the finished project, I know I need to get some sturdier rope, probably from a marine supply store.
Does anyone know of a good source?
