Make your steps nonskid with several stripes of homemade sand paint.
- Beach sand
- Painters tape
Bring home a plastic bag of beach sand, and strain it through a sieve to remove leaves, shells, and pebbles.
Paint stairs with plain paint and let dry
Next, create a template for the stripes by outlining them with painter's tape. In a separate container, mix 2 cups paint with 3/4 cup sand.
Paint stripes with sand paint, keeping paint well stirred, and let dry before removing painter's tape and adding another coat of the sand-free paint.
