I've always wanted to paint my stairs black! One of my favourite makeovers EVER! 

BEFORE & AFTER

We went with a paint grade pine staircase because we knew we were going to paint it. We sanded the stairs first then filled any holes with wood filler. Then we sanded them again with a medium to fine grit sandpaper until nice and smooth. We vacuumed, then wiped everything down with a damp cloth before we got started painting!

 

We used a plain interior paint because we're going to finish the stairs with a black carpet stair runner (stay tuned for pics!). We used Benjamin Moore Natura Paint in Black (2132-10). We ended up doing 2 coats and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out! P.S. It cost us under $100 to paint all the stairs! 

We finished the staircase with a stunning custom wrought iron railing in black. What do you think? :)
