How to Make Your Stairs More Interesting

Friday, March 08, 2013

At this point in the year, I like to start planning ahead and completely overscheduling my calendar with summer to do lists. I already have a few ideas for projects I want to tackle, including a updating the stairs in my basement.

It's one of the few areas of this house that hasn't been painted since we moved in last year, so it's definitely on the project list. This project should be much easier than the last stair update I did in our old house.

I want to get a little creative since it's a basement, so I've been gathering some ideas...

 How fun are these stairs? The words are lyrics to 'Hello I Love You' by the Doors.

 These ombre stairs are a definite front runner - big impact, yet really easy to execute.

Some painters tape and stencils... oh, and patience, is all you need for these. 

I think these vintage ruler steps would be cool for a workspace like the garage.

I do love this yellow...

What about you.... any ideas for how to make a big impact on your stairs?
