Numbered Stairs

A couple of months ago I took up the worn carpet on our stairs.  I painted them instead of covering them back up with a rug. Today I added a little fun accent.

Using my Cricut and sticky vinyl I printed out numbers.
The vinyl can come off without taking up the paint.
If you’d like to read more about where I buy my vinyl and how I use a Cricut visit THIS POST.
I used Storybook font at 3 1/2 height.
It’s so nice to be able to really clean the stairs – they get a lot of traffic so as the paint gets worn – I can just repaint them.
This is an updated photo of my dog, Mazi, in her favorite spot – my white chair.

When you removed the carpet from the stairs,did you have to replace wood. Did you sand before you painted or use a primer? What color paint did you use? Thank You

Of course the dog likes the white chair. Your stairs are adorable.


I am getting ready to paint my stairs. They are already painted (grey and white) I want to do black and white like you had in your other home… Any advice for painting stairs??? I'm getting nervous.. I painted my dining room (wood plank) and it was kind of a nightmare!! LOLThank you!!!!!

LOVE the numbers on the stairs!! It changes them from boring stairs to something really great to look at and you have to look at them everyday, so that is a plus!

Oh I totally love the numbered stairs, how fun and what a great idea. Hugs, Marty


I love your stairs and I wish I had thought to remove the carpet and paint the stairs in my last home! I really want some kind of vinyl machine. Love that the numbers can come off easily!

Such a cute idea. What is it about pets and white chairs? They love to give you the cute look while they are sitting on them :)xo LAura

What a darling idea! I love the painted steps!


I really like your painted stairs! That's a great idea. Ours has carpet on them, but it needs to be replaced. It's not as nice as it used to be. I like the added numbers too. I'm sure I would count the stairs as I went up them if mine were numbered. LOL!

I really like numbered stairs. The numbers adds subtle interest, yet big impact. Does that make sense? :-)Mary Alice

I like numbered stairs and I like how you put the numbers along the one side. Mazi is cute and why do they always pick the white chairs?! Ours does too. Have a great weekend, Holly.
