Ombre Stairs

Hello!  Yesterday I shared before and after photos of the stairs leading down to the basement playroom.  Today,  the before and after view of the stairs going up! 

I had wanted to try the ombre painting effect ever since seeing it done on this dresser.    And once I was finished painting over all that dark paneling I knew the risers of the basement stairs needed to be painted in pretty shades of pink/coral. 

I just started with my base color (Navajo Red - deck stain) and simply added white paint to it - a little more for each riser going up. Not very scientific but it saved me from finding 13 containers to mix paint in for each stair. 




Another quote from Shel Silverstein over the door.
Very happy with how it turned out!
