Easy Cellar Stairway Update

Happy Thursday!

Only 23 days until spring! Are y’all ready, or what!?

Im still working on my spring clean up of the house, and last week, I gave some much needed attention to the stairs of our cellar.

Our house was built in 1950 and I’m pretty sure this area has only been painted once or twice since then. Hard to believe that it’s looked like this since we bought the house 2 years ago. It’s one of those areas that you only look at when you have to go down there, and even then, you don’t really care what it looks like. Ours had faded and dingy yellow paint on the walls and the stairs were a hot mess! Yikes!

Im still working on my spring clean up of the house, and last week, I gave some much needed attention to the stairs of our cellar.

Our house was built in 1950 and I’m pretty sure this area has only been painted once or twice since then. Hard to believe that it’s looked like this since we bought the house 2 years ago. It’s one of those areas that you only look at when you have to go down there, and even then, you don’t really care what it looks like. Ours had faded and dingy yellow paint on the walls and the stairs were a hot mess! Yikes!

Even though he was sick, my husband helped me paint the walls first (because we are messy painters, as you can tell by my paint can) and then I painted the steps myself. It was actually really easy, the paint had great coverage.

After the paint dried over night, I added some stair treads so I don’t fall to my death.

This roll was about $16. I measured out each piece and made sure I had enough for all 11 steps in just one roll. I literally ended up with about 5 inches left over. They are just a peel and stick, so were super easy to apply.

And this is how it looks now.

Ahhh. It feels so much brighter, fresh and clean. You know, for a cellar. I also did the walk up attic walls and stairs in the same colors.

An easy update to a tired cellar stair area.
