I have been wanting to do something with my stairs forever! But I was never sure what to do. I only knew that I did NOT want carpet! LOL! Carpet and I don't work well together :) So I decided to rip up my old disgusting rotten carpet and get to work...
|Here is what my stairs looked like after pulling up the carpet. They have a million staples and nails all over them. They also had some tack boards that I already pulled up on them.|
|As you can see after pulling up all the nails, staples and tack boards these stairs are in some need of tender loving care. I thought about how to do that and I almost bought new wood to replace them all. When it it me!|
|WOOD FILLER! |
Oh WOW how I LOVE this stuff!!!! It really works!!!
|So I began my long long project of filling in a million holes with this stuff..|
|After it dried I got out my trusty sander and started to fill my house with dust LOL! |
I sanded and filled and sanded some more..until it was smooth and perfect!
|After that step was over..I went down to Wal Mart and bought some KILZ - High Gloss Bright White Paint.|
And started to paint..
I think I did three coats.
|Here they are with the finished bright white paint.|
|I love the high gloss bright white paint because it cleans up so good! If dirt, liquid or any other object gets on it it just wipes right off.|
|And here they are! YAY! So glad they are done!|
|And of course I had to add a little vinyl!|
I LOVE THEM!!!
Let me know what you think and if you have any questions let me know!
