How Can I sand my stairs without too much dust?
I pulled up the carpet off 17 steps plus a very small landing. Removed all the staples. The stairs are yellow pine. Would like to sand them and just polyurethane the treads (no stain) and paint the risers and stringer. The price to have a contractor do this is way more than I can afford. Can I hand sand these on my own without creating too much dust everywhere? If so would they look ok or would it look like a really bad job? Part of the stair wall is open and overlooks living room.. or should I spend the money to have a contractor come in and do it fairly dust free?
