The stairs have a special place in every home. Not only are they a high-traffic area but they also contribute to the overall interior décor of your property. Carpeted staircases are no longer trendy. Needless to say, when your carpeting is about a decade old, it has long since lost its appeal, no matter how vigilant you are about maintaining it.
This is an old project of mine, I decided to share as (and I say that as humbly as possible) I believe it was amongst my most successful undertakings. To give you a bit of background info about me: I am a DIY enthusiast. I have some of the tools every self-respecting amateur would have... and I am a girl! Well, I added the last one just to explain why a crowbar (which I should have used in this project) wasn't in my arsenal.
Step 1: The Before
My staircase was wrapped in a hideous fluffy brown carpet. Not only did it cover the entire surface of the stairs but it was tucked around the corners, just like a furry little pest. Honestly, not a look I would have chosen but it came with my lovely house and the quote was far too high to have it fixed right after I moved in. Still the time came and I decided I could make this my little project.
