Decorative and Painted Stairs

(Chris Shepherd via Blab Pictures)

Brett and I are planning to add risers to our mudroom stairs this weekend. That got me thinking about how to finish them! The treads are pretty broke-down, so leaving them as-is is not an option, nor is staining them. That leaves PAINT!!! I am going to start with an oil-based primer, and then who knows??

I thought I would sign off for the weekend with this fabulous round-up of painted stairs inspiration!! Enjoy, and let me know if you think any of them are good jumping-off points for our mudroom!

How neat! I really like the multi-colored ones, though it wouldn't work in our home. Would love to see what you end up doing. Good luck!!
