My New Year's Resolution!

This is the stairway leading to our loft bedroom. I decided it would be the last thing done to our house when we began to build, mainly because I could not decide what I wanted to do with it. Tile, Carpet, Staining, Stenciling...Then life happened as it usually does for all of us as some point. After a few tough years of caring for both our moms in our home and then the inevitable happened, Honey had an event similar to sleep walking and fell to these stairs not hitting till the last few steps and suffered a traumatic brain injury. That was a year ago and we have since moved back up stairs and have installed a gate that the Dr. suggested. Now, it is time to face this monster from the past...(I'm thinking carpet with padding on the floor) lol!! Any ideas?
Look from the bottom.
Look from the top.

    Oh I hear you on that "mostly done" or "done enough". I'm tired of that too.

    I happen to love that particle board look I would treat it so it can have a waxed finish ,then stain the top in a darker color.
