Has anyone painted a two story foyer?

Recommended Posts

I have done it twice - hire someone. LOL I use ladders and extension poles. My dh also built a kind of scaffolding on the stairs. If you decide to do it maybe you should rent the scaffolding for a day? It is doable but I always think I'll never do it again.

We hooked the edger up to the telescoping pole and edged (successfully), then we used the roller. It went a lot faster than I thought it would.


We've got a split level, so half the stairs go up and half the stairs go down. When we replaced the light fixture over the stairs we used a 6' ladder near the front door and extended 2 2x12's from the steps to the ladder, making a kind of scaffolding. I don't think this is the best way to paint, though... I'd go with a telescoping pole.
