Would you paint your stairs? Paint can be a great quick fix for stairs that look worn down, or stairs that just look too plain. I painted my foyer steps about 8 years ago, and it was a good way to update and improve stairs that didn’t look too great.

After we tore off the nasty old carpet we were left with steps that were less than ideal. So painted them and added a nice message to the risers.

As you can see, the stairs are finally starting to look a wee bit tired and I’m going to re-do them soon. So I looked around for some painted stair inspiration!

Love the blue stripe down the middle! via Better Homes & Gardens
I love these yellow stairs from Lover Mother! I don’t know if I’d do the numbers as well as the yellow. I think it would be so fun to open the door and be greeted by cheerful yellow stairs!
I love everything about these stairs. I’m trying to tone down all the color in my house but I just love the use of those three vibrant colors!
How about a bit of a geometric design on the risers. I thought about keeping the treads a neutral color and doing something fun like a stencil or wallpaper on the risers.
These may be decals or stenciled. Either way, I think they’re cool!
How fun are these rainbow stairs! via Planet Deco Pastels would also look pretty.
This stairway by Salvaged Bliss is so pretty and subtle!
I really like this one too. I’m seriously considering doing this.
Pretty and very classic cottage looking don’t you think? The risers are beadboard. She rebuilt her stairs which I wouldn’t need to do. I was thinking I could just reface the riser with thin beadboard paneling or I have beadboard wallpaper that I could use. Then I’d paint the treads a black or deep chocolate.
This one is just for fun. Doesn’t it make you smile!
I’ve been very happy with my painted stairs. I think it’s a whole lot easier to sweep them than to have carpet on them and have to vacuum!
