Carpet to Wood Staircase Reveal

We made some mistakes and learned what worked best but the makeover came out so perfect that I can't wait to start on the
After ripping out the carpet the staircase got all new wood treads and white risers. The original handrails and newel post got stained black while the balustrades went white.
To save money we cut and routed all the wood treads ourselves out of pine boards.
I love how clean and new the staircase looks now. Not to mention how much easier it is to keep wood clean than carpet!
The ebony rails and newel post are my favorite part. The glossy finish is like jewelry for the stairs!
