Today i’m sharing a home renovation project my husband and i recently completed.
Our house had a carpeted stairway, that we wanted to change to hardwood to match the rest of the house. Plus our dogs like to lay on the landing area and it was starting to smell from previous accidents they have had.
Here is the before.
We started this project by ripping up all the carpet and we also changed the wall color to white, to brighten up this area even more.
And then, we added the treads and risers. We stained the treads ourselves with a light stain to match our hardwood floors. We painted the risers white.
Then all that was left to do was the finishing touches (caulking, replacing baseboard, touching up paint, etc.).
I love the way it turned out, and i love that we no longer have stinky carpet! Sorry i forgot to get a picture before we put the baby gate up.
