Stenciled stair risers can enhance the appearance of a staircase without implementing structural changes.
This week I received a couple of pictures of a staircase that an overseas customer had stencilled with border stencil IN41. She and I exchanged email messages to make sure that the stencil was sized for a perfect fit on the stair risers. We enlarged this one to the required measurement.
The customer had prepared plywood facings for each stair so that she could stencil a flat surface and then attach the facings to the stairs rather than lie or sit on each step to decorate them (as I do).
This is a clever way of decorating stair risers and was a sensible option as she had not used a stencil before. I think the results are excellent, the stairs look fresh and interesting, she has picked a traditional border design but because of the colour combination the effect is contemporary. Thank you Mr & Mrs Brown. You did a great job and thank you for sending the pictures.
