Ripping carpet off the stairs

14,445 Views
One of my favorite projects to date, ripping off old carpet, adding molding and painting my old stairs and adding a runner. I'm working on a 1979 house renovation now with stairs just like these and I've got some fun plans for them too. This time, I'm going to add pine stair treads and will paint them and add a pretty runner. Stay tuned for that one! In the meantime, this might give you some ideas if you have carpet you hate! I detest carpet on stairs.
For all the details, see this post on my blog: http://southernhospitalityblog.com/the-down-dirty-on-the-stair-project/

    It seems that many people do. I love the runner you chose on this one. Can't wait to see what you do next!

    Did this is our old townhouse. What a difference! Can't wait to get to it in the new house!

    Thanks so much! I'm getting ready to add painted pine stair treads to my new house with another runner.
