Before and After. DIY Stairway Redesign. So easy. Step 1. Remove old carpet. (This is the hardest part, try not to get poked from the old tacks. Be careful!) Step 2. Paint steps. (You can do 1 color for easy, half the time painting, or alternate 2 colors on the rise and run. I alternated white and an espresso brown paint that matches my redone furniture. Regular interior paint will do as it's just the edges that aren't walked on.) Step 3. Staple on runners. (Shown is 3 runners from Target.)
From another pinner, "Pretty gray -- sherwin williams "Pavillion Beige" I have painted my past three houses this color. I always get asked what the color is. It is a beige grey color. Perfection!!!!!":
The paint color for the walls is Dansbury Downs by Pratt and Lambert, and the molding color is White Dove by Benjamin Moore. Kind of a darker brown- but in the living room with lots of light, and tone on tone with our brownish couch?
