i used Benjamin Moore's floor paint. It's super durable and 5 years later they still look like I just painted them (the wood of the stairs is new so that probably helped as the wood was unfinished so it was easier for the paint to stick - so sanding them a bit first might help).

Feeling brave? Go all white. I love this look and could really see it in a cottage style home or beach house? This stairway would also look great with a seagrass or sisal runner right down the center.
