Oak Staircase Makeover

on October 7, 2016

Here’s a peak at what I’m currently working on. My lovely (blah!) oak staircase. This is the original stain. I’ve been working furiously to give it a facelift. UPDATE: see how it all turned out in this updated post here.

Here’s another view.

After some sanding to rough up the surface and taping in prep for new stain.

In progress-stained and white paint started on risers.

I’m not done yet. This is turning into about a 2 week job. I’ve so far gotten all the white risers done and a couple of coats on the spindles. Still have a few more coats to go but so far, I think it’s really brightened up what was a dark staircase. My foyer is quite large and the stairs are one of the first things you see when you walk through the front door. I wanted them to be the focal point. Let me know what you think. I’ll post the final reveal if I ever get this all done!

    WOW Vee, a lot of work and patience required. However, with your revamp, you are definitely going to achieve your wish, to have these beautiful stairs, a focal point. Good on you!
