The wood was already very distressed (the house is 60 years old) which made painting easy because I didn’t need to be perfect. I wanted a rustic, rough, worn feel.

Little red carpet pads, mismatched railings with brassy hardware and knicked up risers.
* Step 9 & 10 only apply to steps and painted runner part on riser. Don’t stain or poly the white part of riser.
