Adding bright color and pattern to a staircase is a wonderful way to bring style and attention to a dull narrow space.
Paint the outside areas of the steps and risers. If necessary, apply two coats. We did our first coat in a coral undercoat, then came back and topped it in a coat of red.
Paint the 1-inch stripe. We used black paint and applied it with a foam brush. Remove the tape and let these sections dry thoroughly.
When the paint is totally dry, tape off the black stripe and red section. Paint the remaining areas — the center of the step and riser, as well as the 1-inch stripe between the black and red.
