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.
