Inside the new House & Canvas store, there is a set of stairs leading up to the restroom. The stairs and floors are that gawd-awful orange laminate fake wood, that was popular like 15 years ago and that should honestly, never be sold anywhere again. It’s so ugly.
Anyway, there is no way I am forking out the dough to replace all of the flooring since I’m renting this place, so best short term solution?? Paint it of course!! Because I paint everything…
Painting Stairs With Chalk-Style Paint
Right now, the nosing, treads, and landing are chalk painted black with a clear top coat, and the risers are white (actual colours to be announced at a later date!). But they just look a bit ‘blah’… I’ve been scouring Pinterest to find some ideas on how to take my chalk painted stairs and floor up a notch.
Now to decide on what to do!!
Paint a runner? Add some lettering? Colourful Stairs? Ombre Treads? Stenciled Risers? So many awesome ideas!!!!
Finishing The Stairs With Inspiration
These are a few photo’s I’ve come across on sites likes houzz and pinterest. Nothing has hit me over the head yet. In a future DIY post I will outline how to refinish your stairs with a chalk-style paint. In the meantime I am looking for that last finishing touch to transform the new painted black stairs with white treads into something showstopping!
