Staircase makeover

The stairs in my 100+ year old office building had seen better days. While the treads are probably original, which I’m assuming due to their narrow depth, the railing looks and feels like a cheap replacement for whatever flanked the steps when the building was still a house. I’ve always been embarrassed to have clients climb the scuffed, dingy staircase to…who knows where.

The solution was a three-step process: black floor paint on the treads, gloss white paint on the risers and trim, and a bright blue-green on the wall rising between the first and second floors. This took about six hours’ total time, and WHAT a difference!
