Skirt board on stairs all screwed up under the carpeting!
We tore up the carpeting to prepare the stairs for laminate flooring on them. We were planning on sanding and painting the stair skirt board. But found this!!
The builder installed the stair crooked so there are shims (actually the trim from the floor used as shims) on the sides of the stairs!
We can't think of any way to paint these now as it will be crooked all the way down! The carpet hid it, but I don't know if there's a way to paint, or cover them in veneer to make it look good.
Any ideas of how to fix this would be greatly appreciated! The stairs are IMBEDDED into the skirt, and we're not going to rip out the stairs as it's sheetrocked underneath. We're thinking that our only option is to re-carpet. NOT what I wanted. I HATE carpet on our main stairs! Any help??
