Funky Junk Interiors

Desiring something more unique than carpeted stairs, an old crate stairway was created out of craft paint, some stencils and a little creativity. The paint went directly on the original wood, creating a very believable effect that the stairs were really derived from chunks of old crates. The reaction from visitors is always most entertaining. :)

This set of stairs borrows the look of vintage soft drink cases — in paint.
