Mul­ti­ple mini mir­rors Sheets of slightly ir­reg­u­lar mo­saic mir­rors bounce light around and add ex­otic flair. You’ll need a tile cut­ter (Pre­ci­sion glass tile nip­per) and a bit of time— or a trusted handy­man. Waves of Wall­pa­per Use sheets of wall­pa­per on your stair case to give

it a play­ful look. Change­able Chalk­board Prompt spon­ta­neous cre­ativ­ity with a clean (or art­fully dec­o­rated) slate. Go ba­sic black or bold— chalk­board-paint col­ors span the rain­bow. Tip: Clean with a damp cloth rather than an eraser to min­i­mize chalk dust and slip­pery stairs. This is

mostly used when you have chil­dren in the house. Paint Job Choose con­sec­u­tive col­ors on the same paint strip. For the stairs on the open­ing page, we used five shades, on three stairs apiece. A small, an­gled brush is best for edges; use a larger brush to fill in. And you can have fun with it.
