Decorating a staircase often comes as an afterthought to those renovating a home, but the staircase actually ties the entire place together.
Stairs are usually found near the entryway of a house, which is the first thing people see when they walk into you home. Wouldn’t you want it to be as beautiful as possible?
Sure, you could always decorate the wall next to your stairs, or you could install expensive hardwood or carpeting, but that is a low-impact solution that could cost you hundreds.
The solution? One super cheap material, a little bit of DIY skill, and an hour or two.
To spruce up your stairs a bit, try this one hack I recently stumbled upon. It’s cheap, it’s easy, and the end result is gorgeous.
All you need is some contact paper. It’s basically just a giant, waterproof sticker, kind of like wallpaper, that can cover any surface and make it look brand new.
Here’s how it’s done. Measure and cut your contact paper, then use it like a large sticker and place it over the areas you’d like to cover.
This instantly transforms plain wood or solid paint into whatever pattern you want. Your stairs can become marble, pure gold, or crystal for just a few dollars. Pretty cool, huh?
If you want to see this entire process in action, watch the video below by YouTube channel Hometalk. It’ll get down to the nitty gritty for you.
