Before and After - Painted Stair risers and spindles

Janice742November 15, 2012

I haven't always loved my floors - while I love wood - I was never fond of the color.

So, we decided to brighten up the stairs by painting the risers and spindles. Also painted the walls.

We are very happy with the results. And now I actually like my floors!

I thought the before pic looked nice...then, I saw the after pic and it's even nicer! Excellent choices, your home is beautiful!

We have similar flooring, but carpeted stairs & metal railings. Some day, we want wood stairs/railing like yours.
I bookmarked this post as an inspiration for when we get to this project.

Thank you for sharing!
