Toni Talk ~ 9 Ways To Transform The Staircase"!

Q: Dear Toni....I have a staircase that is just calling for some interest! I recently removed all the carpet from it because it was worn and dingy! And now it's so boring. Since it's the first thing you see upon stepping into my home through the front door, well,  it needs something. But what? I don't  need it to be expensive, I just need it to be interesting!

A: Paint it, wallpaper it, tile it, decal it, and have some fun with it! All the staircases below require LITTLE $$$ but the return on investment value is BIG! Add a little elbow grease...boom!
