A Creative Staircase Makeover

$25-50
3 Weeks

Our staircase is the first thing you see when you walk into our home and it suffered from dingy carpeing syndrome. I decided to rip off the old carpet and give it a decorative paint job. It was a bit more work than I thought it would be but in the end, all of the time and backaches was well worth it. I love my stais now! To read about the entire transformation please visit my post

After removing the carpeting and hours spread over weeks of plucking out staples, the stairs are ready for a good sanding.
