Our home was bought in 2008. The home was built in 1928. These are the origional stairs. They were carpeted with an ugly beige color
carpet that we were unsure of pulling up. This shot shows the starting of whats become quite the project.
Picture 2 is what we found under the carpet. Iam sorry to say I do not know the type of wood. I really wish I did.
Picture 3 is a close up of what the wood looks like and the 85 years of beatings they have taken.
This is the decision to also include the trim . It just makes sense. I think I will use the stripper to remove the paint and stain from this point. The dust is unreal.
