Tips For Painting Your Stairwell On A Budget
A good-looking staircase can add a touch of elegance and personality to a home. The best and most cost-effective option to reinvent your stairwell is to dress up your stairs with a painted runner or you can paint the entire stairwell as your own DIY project!
You need a smooth, clean surface to paint, so use sandpaper to get rid of any dents or scratches, then put down newspaper or drop cloths to protect the surroundings from potential paint stains. Be sure to use a paint roller for an even coat and an edger attached to an extension pole for hard-to-reach places.
Painting your stairwell yourself is a great way to save money, and you can save even more by planning your project beforehand to make sure you don’t overspend and to find the best discounts on paint. In the long run, you'll save money by investing in good-quality paint as it will give you better coverage, meaning you won’t need as many coats to get the job done.
