DIY Updating 80's Oak Stairwell


This was beautiful once it was done. The taping was the most painful part, runner up was painting the balusters. The cost was the paint - 1/2 gallon of antique white and light purple/brown (foreshadow) - less than $20.

    Just lovely! What tedious work, done so well. You mentioned the new wall color as "foreshadow". Could you please mention the brand of paint you used?

    Thank you! I believe I used a Lowe's brand, but can't remember the exact.
