My Very Own Statement Stairs

Are you ready??  Some of you may know that I was remaking my stair case while Derek was out of town over the weekend.  This project started a month ago when I ripped up the nasty brown carpet covering the stairs.  And it is now complete…ready to be crossed off the list.

So, yes.  Between being locked out of the house and locked into the garage…I made my staircase look like one fit for a dollhouse.  I’m impressed with myself.  I knew I wanted them white with dark treads.  Then I took it a step further {after spending some time drooling over this statement staircase} by making a statement.  Hospitality is deeply important to Derek and me, so I painted “welcome” on the risers in different languages.  {The top riser is braille!  Fun, right?}

Want to know how I took the gross brown steps circa 1975 and turned them around?  Look no farther…just click here!

And now I’ve got candy to make.  {Another something you’ll be seeing in the coming days.}

  1. AMY! Fabulous job! Your statement stairs are so great looking! They have been given an amazing new life! I’m going to pin them to my future ideas board now…

  2. this looks so different and cute! i love the white risers, mine are oak, but i’ve been told i can’t paint them. ugh!

    • Thank you so very much! My husband didn’t want me to paint anything novelty on the risers…but I finally convinced him by assuring him that we can always sand and paint it back!

  3. That is one serious dramatic before and after! Looks fabulous and love the “statement” it makes!
