Give a plain white staircase a whole new personality by creating a faux runner. Paint the outer edges, add stripes and stamp Xs and Os on the risers for a new, whimsical look.

The stairs were painted with Annie Sloan chalk paint in French Linen, distressed, then dry brushed with a little white paint. If they get scratched up ... it will just add to the distressed character.

Pinner said..."Ordered 3 runners from Wayfair at $35 a piece. I love the look and it only took 3 or 4 days total (including painting the treads Annie Sloan Graphite and the risers white)! Took Eric and I to do the nailing part. Even with measuring each step it takes two people to make sure the rug is in place. DIY stair runner ----- basement staircase. paint white. use a runner...."
