Certain home improvement projects seem daunting. Others, we know we could pull off in a few hours if we carve out the time.

Well, after watching Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott on a recent segment on The Rachael Ray Show, we're certainly inspired to upgrade our home's stairway.

"You could go crazy and do something incredible that would cost a lot of money," Jonathan Scott says on the episode. "Or you could do something like paint it all out, and it would look a thousand times better." The seemingly simple idea can make an old staircase look good as new and the entire project can be completed in an afternoon.

If you feel like getting fancy, you can also add some paneling to make your DIY efforts even more impressive. Watch the full clip here.
