When this broken leg is healed and I'm back to my regular energy level, Phillip and I plan to tackle a small flight of stairs that are currently completely unfinished and disgusting. I've read a few DIY accounts on how to refinish them myself, and I am thinking pretty stained wood steps with white risers.
But if, someday, I have stairs going up to the attic where a kid lives, or perhaps down into a basement, or outside in a fun backyard, you can bet I will be painting the risers in rainbow brights! My very favorites are the white walls with colored risers and wood steps. They are just so unexpected and cool.
I showed these pictures to Phillip and asked if we can paint our stair risers bright colors, or even just one bright color, and he just gave me the side eye. Someday, I will convince him. Just you wait and see.
Would you ever paint your risers a bright color? Do any of you have an appropriate set of stairs for this madness?
