"New" Stairs. Ripped up the Nasty Carpet & the Long Project Began
Lots of hours, MDF, primer, paint, sanding, stain and poly. My hubby sure is glad its over! He did every inch of it. I helped some. Mostly I just brought him cold beers.
After pic (we wrapped the carpet around the nose of the top landing) We decided to add wainscot in the stairwell, but then took it all through the hallway too. My husband was so happy with me at this point.
Before. We hated the 80's stain color, old carpet and brown everywhere.
After. Found the balusters at Habitat for Humanity Restore by pure accident. This project could wait no longer.
After. Foyer floor was original- and will (eventually) be stained darker to match the new flooring next to it. Luckily for us, the treads under the carpet had a bull-nose.
