Thanks, the hardware is drapery hardware from restoration hardware and the rope is from a basic hardware store.

Hi, we had a pro come into paint the stairs, you can see the paint choices in this month's HGTV magazine. I believe it was Benjamin Moore paints and there is a clear coat finishing coat of polyurethane on top.

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Playful and Elegant in New York
This staircase leads up to a space located over the garage, which holds De Chiara's home gym and the Zhush headquarters. The stairs were given a special touch with hand painted numbers and a simple rope bannister.

Natalie Myers added this to DIY: Paint Your Floor for a Fresh Update
Continuing the paint up the stairs offers more real estate on which to flex your creative muscle. More: How to Get Rid of Your Old Carpet13 Choices for Checkered FloorsAre You Gutsy Enough to Paint Your Floor White?
8. Stairway + lots of paint = painted runner. Update a dark staircase by painting layers of light colors. Start with a white base, follow with the main runner color and accent with a thin border stripe if you wish.
Don't be afraid of painted floors! There are some fantastic hard-wearing floor paints available. And if you're using white, which really does look lovely, these paints won't yellow either.
17. Number your steps Kids will enjoy walking up to their room and counting the stairs aloud. The numerals can be painted freehand or using a stencil and a sponge applicator.
