Can't wait to see what you do! I've been itching to rip the nasty carpet off our stairs and have an idea for the treads that uses brown craft paper, but I hadn't decided what to do with the risers yet. I especially love idea #2 considering I have rooms in the turquoise and green in nearby rooms...


Oh...be still my beating heart - numbers 5 & 6!! Swoon. I LOVE them all, but those are my faves. Each one has it's own personality & flair. Can't wait to see what you do. :)


OOooh I am excited. Can't wait to see them I have often admired some of those same steps. Love being able to save it all now! ... I have wood stairs too...but it would mean too much bending... We'll see though. I may just get some thin board and adhere it to them...very inspirational!

So cute! My favorites are #1 & #7. Show us how your creativity soars when you've completed your project!


Oh, thank you for the inspiration! I have stairs to my basement studio that i have been wanting to paint.

Fantastic... can not wait to see the outcome! I just know your stairs are going to look incredible!!! <3


That is an AWESOME idea! Love it! Can't wait to see how yours turns out! I think the decision process would kill me. So many ways to go! I am having a hard enough time doing my Sketchbook Project without the added pressure of making it permanent in my house! So excited for you to be almost there! And this post has a lot of ! so I better stop writing. ;-)
