DecorBook Classic : Stair Steppin'

October 13, 2019

As we get closer to the holidays, I was thinking of affordable projects anyone could do in a day or two - just in time to show off to holiday guests.  What about updating a staircase? Ours is covered with carpet so we're a bit stuck, but that doesn't mean I can't dream. Don't you love this trompe l'oeil black runner?  It's amazing what an impact a little paint makes. Let's take a look at the impact of just changing the risers - easily done with paint, stickers, stencils or wallpaper.

Love this transformation!


Wallpapered risers creates a wood effect.


This homeowner had a high resolution image printed on outdoor vinyl and then glued to risers.  He says it look him just an hour to install.


Paint - elegant hues of turquoise.


A rainbow of purples and greens- easily done with sample pots of paint.


Dramatic graphics in a monochromatic room using stencils.


Old warm charm using vinyl stickers.


Stencils are limited only by our imagination.  These would be fun in a house with little ones learning to count.


 Mediterranean stencils from Royal Design Studio Stencils.


Amazing stencil work for a colonial house.


Glorious wallpaper - imagining floating up to bedrooms in an old country house.  If you're lucky enough to have a staircase with wooden risers, how about changing them up?  I'm almost ready to rip the carpet off our staircase.
