Do you have a staircase that could use some help? Sure, new carpet would be great, but, wow!, it’s not cheap.

Carpet on stairs gets so many stains and wears out so quickly! Find the answer to your problems here !

Phase 1

For about a year I have been thinking about redoing our stairs. Should I?Can I? Would I dare? Rip up carpet?? So I did.

The project continues with a day of sanding and scraping up the paint and caulk that was on the stairs.

Phase 2

Phase 3

After stairs were all cleaned up good, I could start painting. I primed the risers with a white primer.

Then I painted the treads with the brown. We loved the color Behr Sweet Molasses, it is a true chocolate color–rich and warm and has lots of character.

Valspar Signature is a paint and primer in one. I chose Eggshell finish because I am going to be putting 3 coats of polyurethane on the steps.
