DIY - Basement Continues

Here is the Stairway- 

 Just going to the next wall.  Looks great coming down the stairway.

 Here is how I am doing it.  Using 4 paints on a tray.  Using a 3 inch paint brush and just going from color to color.  So it is very easy to paint.  Each block comes out different.
