Easy Stairway Update on a budget – for only $75
A home entry is the first impression that a visitor gets when they are inside your home. An easy update to can be some fresh paint: contrasting hues of ivory and deep chocolate are modern yet classic at the same time.
My home was built in 1989~white wash and brass! Lots to update, one project at a time. Not to mention all wallpapered walls and everything in peach & green southwest style. Lots of wall paper removed over the years. Some updates done, still plenty to do.
My husband and I refinished this staircase ourselves for under $75. Some sanding, painters tape, & lots of patience (I went thru two stain colors until I found this one), Mahogany Gel Stain is the way to go! I used the same white paint we used on our baseboards but in a gloss Kelly Moore Swiss Coffee.
It’s a great feeling when you can do a fairly doable home improvement project on your own. And this one makes that especially so because its a main focal point of our home. Every day we walk these stairs & feel so much pride in the fact that we did it on our own. If we could do it, most anyone can do it.
