From Dark To Dramatic – Staircase Makeover

Do you have a tall, dark, very uninteresting staircase that is calling out for some attention? I did…and I found a way to do a staircase makeover that has completely transformed the space from tall, dark and cave-like to bright and airy. Scroll through the pages to see the before and afters, as well as the steps I took to get there.

    What kind of ladder did you use? This is a really “tricky” space to position a ladder…I have a similar space and have been mulling this around for months! It looks incredible, so lovely.

      Thanks Kathy! You’re right, it is a tricky space for a ladder! I used one of those multi-positional ladders that you can position like scaffolding (Here’s an example at Home Depot: For most of the stairway, I was able to have one end of the ladder on the floor at the bottom of the stairs, and the other end going straight across to the landing so that it was like scaffolding. For the very top of the wall, I had to put the ladder on the landing and lean it up against the wall at the other end of the stairway, which was a little scary. But it got the job done (no accidents, thank goodness!)
