Yes, back to painting the stairs.
One coat of primer, two coats of porch paint.
Painted all the trim before the second coat.
Then corner molding for each step.
I used a Martha Stewart specialty paint called Terra Cotta. It has sand mixed in it so it gives a little added traction.
After I used the terra cotta paint, I then added a thin layer of glow in the dark paint.
It gave an unintentional marbled effect that I really like AND it GLOWS IN THE DARK. Way cool!
I tried to get a photo of the glowing stairs, but my camera phone isn't up to that.
Yes, it is a necessary part of the process to step on the giant ball of painted tape at the bottom of the stairs. It won't turn out right if you skip this step.
AND all done!
Okay, all done except the quarter molding...need to practice on the
miter saw before I attempt those little corners.
