I feel like every DIY post I write is a project I did about eight months ago. This one is no exception! Finally being pregnant and basically a couch potato, I don’t have the energy for projects so I guess I might as well get y’all caught up on everything I did last year. Last year I did more projects than I could even blog and I learned SO much, so many things to tell you about!
One of the most obnoxious projects we did was to paint the stair balusters. Obnoxious because we did it wrong. So I’m here to save you from the giant headache that we had to deal with and be thankful you read this post about painting stair balusters before trying to do it yourself! I don’t have a ton of pictures but I will try to be as explanatory as I can.
First of all, our stair balusters are square and plain. They were stained dark, the same color as our railing. The home builders wanted to charge an extra $1000 to have the two-tone banister.
We decided it wouldn’t be too hard to paint them and save the money. (We couldn’t have been more wrong, sadly.) But don’t let that deter you from trying yourself after reading this tips.
