Hello, DIY Stair Runner, I think I love you!

DIY Stair Runner They say first impressions are lasting, so why not go bold with your entry and make a power statement?

Putting a bold rug up your stairs is the equivalent to wearing a seriously snazzy pocket square in your suit pocket or tying a silk scarf around your neck.  It's courageous, it's eye catching, and it's unforgettable!

If your foyer is begging for a mini makeover then this DIY Stair Runner is going to be a total game changer. Not only is it ingenious visually, it's totally customizable to your own tastes, colors, and style.  But the best part?  It will save you loads of money and everyone will assume you spent a small fortune!  What's not to love about that?

I've definitely been seeing the banister painted these days, but painting the trim to coordinate with the rug adds yet another layer of boldness.  I personally could imagine myself painting the trim black and adding a zebra print rug up the stairs!

What do you think?  Would you use this idea in your own home?  What colors would you choose?

Want all the elements to bring this look together?  

Hang oil portraits in a non-uniform pattern up the stairwell and in the entry.

Place a Gold Console Table to play off the red and blue or silver for added elegance.

A really great vase is the perfect place to bring flowers from the garden.

If you do happen to use your front door, a box for your keys is always super handy!
