The staircase might be one of the last places homeowners think to decorate, but there are ways you can add some visual appeal to this under-utilized décor space. Take for instance this DIY project to paint a two-color chevron pattern on your stair risers. You might have seen this project featured in a Home Depot TV commercial.
In this short video below, we’ll take you through all the steps of painting the pattern on your steps. This includes a list of all the materials and tools you’ll need, and demonstrations of how to paint the first “base” color, how to create the chevron stencil and trace the pattern. Then you’ll see how to use painter’s tape to tape off the pattern and paint the darker color.
