Finally have the stair case board and batten ready to show. It was fairly easy to do. I got some ideas on Pinterest. I went between framing out the walls and board and batten. We chose the board and batten route with the taller walls.
I also found a company on Etsy that makes vinyl lettering for your walls. "Begin Each Day With A Grateful Heart" is one of my favorite quotes so I had the letters done up for this long wall at the top of the staircase which you will see later in this post.
|The board and batten closed in the staircase a little bit but I am ok with that because it has a more finished feel now.|
|We continued the board and batten around the landing in the upstairs hall.|
|For the risers I found this paintable border on the clearance at Lowe's for $5 dollars a roll. It is embossed and I thought it would give the risers some personality!|
|It took 3 rolls of border to do the 15 stair risers. Not bad for $15 dollars.|
|After we cut each piece we applied wallpaper border paste to the back. Even though these were prepasted borders we felt the paste would hold up better.|
|This is the saying I had done up for this wall. The letters look like they were hand painted onto the wall. Easy peasy to hang this saying.|
|Now every morning when I head down stairs to start my day I am reminded of this beautiful saying.|
|I am happy with the board and batten to fill in these tall walls and love the lettering to make the decor feel simple and easy on the staircase.|
There you have it the stairrisers and stair walls got a little make over. Using MDF boards made this project very inexpensive and easy to do. Now the walls going up the stairs do not feel as tall and boring.
Before the makeover every trip up and down these steps I could feel the staircase and walls saying make us pretty and give us some style!!!!
Hope you have a wonderful rest of this week.
