For many of us north of the equator, the days are drawing out and the sun shining for a little longer as we move deeper into spring and closer to summer. Given nautical themed interiors are always popular for the spring/summer season, I think this graduating blue staircase is the ideal DIY for this time of year. Easily achieved in a weekend, I would start preparing your wooden staircase by sanding it down then wiping clean with a cloth before coating everything with several coats of primer. After the final coat of primer is dry, paint the stairs in a matt white eggshell. Once dry, number each stair front with a pencil to ensure the number of graduated colours matches how many stairs you have, matching each number to one of your paint colours. Next, section off the individual stair fronts with masking tape and paint inside the lines. When dry, peel the tape off carefully and then seal with several coats of floor varnish. Finally, add a rope for a handrail by tying it to hardware rings for a finishing nautical touch. So fun! Have a great weekend, friends!
