Craftastic Magic Stairs
I’m automatically inspired by this awesome project – Amazing!
Pippa Branham, a mom and bibliophile from Woolpit, England, hand-painted her staircase to look like the spine of her and her husband’s 13 favorite books, she shared on Facebook. The brilliant work of art was inspired by an image she saw on Pinterest.
And upon closer inspection, you can see the amount of detail included in each design.
To ensure the stairs were safe for kids (and not slippery from the paint), she mixed the paint with a small amount of kid’s play sand to make it grittier, Branham told Buzzfeed.
The whole project cost the family less than $200, which was less expensive than carpeting the stairs and not to mention, much more fun.
Branham said the most difficult part of the project was painting sets of letters sideways, but that she’s very happy with the results.
