Woman Paints Staircase With Her Favorite Book Covers

Pippa Branham and her husband moved to their first permanent home just last year, which meant it was finally time for Pippa to personalize their home. Her first target was the staircase.

Pippa wanted to make the stairs safer for children, so she thought carpeting the stairs (£200) would be a good idea. That was until she stumbled upon a DIY picture on Pinterest… Inspired by it, she decided to decorate the stairs with the covers of her favorite books. She made a list of her fave books, found the original copies that she read for the first time, and got to work! The result is not only amazingly good looking, but also safe for kids, as she mixed the paint with children’s play sand to make it grippy, and not to mention £180 cheaper than her original idea to carpet the stairs!

i thought i'd see a harry potter book as a step in a staircase.. and was dissapointed.. so maybe i should try out this one on my own-- my only problem is that not only i don't have stairs i could paint it on, i also don't own a house :/

I LOVE the creativity. Even better, she took the time to make a few of the 'books' appear to have worn spines and slight tears. Her cleverness put this whole design over the top!
