Avoid sanding dust
The first step is to sand your staircase to give it a good surface for the paint to adhere to. When the surface is sanded, dust occurs. A smart alternative is to use a hand sanding support with suction. It connects to the vacuum cleaner when you’re sanding, so you don’t have dust flying around.
Small and efficient
A mini roller is a perfect tool for painting stairs. Anza’s Filt mini roller has very good capacity and coverage, and is suitable for painting indoor woodwork.
Paint every other step
If the stairs need to be used during the stair painting, put a tape mark on the steps that are not to be painted. When you have painted every second step and the paint has dried, move the markings and paint the rest of the stairs.
