Every owner of wooden stairs should know that painted finishes can supply you a look that’s nice and clean. Many people want to paint their stairs to refresh an old coat or because they’re removing the carpet. Anyone who is in either situation would benefit from reading the advice we’ve prepared below.
Start by painting your stairs with your primer. This shall give the new coat something to stick to. Additionally, it’ll prevent the paint from merely soaking into the wood. Give the primer sufficient time to dry. Afterwards, smooth the surface down and give it a quick sanding using fine sandpaper. If there’s any dust, wipe it off and begin on your uppermost coat.
Keep it all smooth
Be careful with your painting and try to keep everything smooth. Ensure that there are zero drips down the risers as well. Slapping an incredibly thick coat on may seem tempting, but don’t give in. Your paint shall last for a longer period if you paint a series of thin coats. It will also look much better.
Between coats, have a look at the drying times on your paint tin. After you put the final coat on, leave the stairs alone for 24 hours if you can. Once enough time passes, you can continue using them. The longer you leave the paint, the more robust it will be. It is also a good idea to make sure that the staircase is properly ventilated. This is safer and will speed up drying.
