The steps look pretty good actually and the same with the ones going upstairs. I am not sure what I want to do at this point. He removed the staples and the strip that held the carpet in place. Sanded where they were pulled from and it looks good.
I am thinking about a runner but don't know if I want the stair bar or stair clips like were used in the old Victorian days. They seem to be making a comeback and I like them. A link Here of what they look like. Just not sure if the carpet would sag in the middle. ???? I just don't want a lot of nails or tacks back in the stairs. Also thinking of painting the part of step that faces - white and leave
the tread natural oak
Now to remove the carpet going up. Looks better already.
Not sure what color runner I want either.
Got to make a choice on painting a contrasting white on the facing board.
Meanwhile outside today was another hot one. Thought I would be painting more on the playhouse after doc appt. but way too hot for that.
