Hey guys!!! In today's blog I will be showing you the process of updating my terrible basement stairs. This was a long tedious process. Hopefully my tips will help you to make yours an easier process. I had so many ideas of how I wanted to update these stairs but ... I kept it safe and went with white.
I originally wanted to stain the entire stair case but the wood was not the best even after sanding and removing layer upon layers of paint. Our house was built in 1955 and all the caked on paint showed that.
Yikes!!! Here are my terrible stairs. before. The outline that you see was were the treads .
This paint stripper is like magic. You will need to apply it with a paint brush. DO NOT use a foam brush, the gel will eat through it.
This is what it looks like once you apply the gel. We let this sit for 1 hour.
It comes off so easily. I will definitely be using this product for future projects. We did scrub the stairs down after we scrapped off the old paint.
This is the After!!!!!!!! So much better. We are not sure if we plan to put the treads back on. Let me know in the comments below if you have ever considered painting your stairs.
