Its been a while. I have been busy. This is one of the projects we have completed very recently.
I didn’t get pictures ready of the before with the ugly carpet on the steps but I did show the progress of peeling the carpet and padding. We had to pull tack stripes and staples out of the treads. My husband wanted to use wood filler in the tiny holes but I said no, it makes character. You can’t even tell they were there so no biggy any ways.
My hubby stained the treads and he even got frisky enough to paint the risers for me.
I painted the banister parts.
Then I put on the “rugs” for stability. After walking on the bare steps for over a week, I felt I needed the traction and so did the dogs and kitties. You can see Dipper watching me from the top step in one of the photos.
I hope you are inspired to strip and paint your steps.
I have more coming up. We took down some paneling and replaced with drywall. I also have some smaller projects we have done and are in the process of doing. And my island should be built soon so I can finally share the final kitchen photos.
