Stair Hard

Stair Hard

On to business: staircase redos. You’ve seen them, I’ve seen them. Maybe, like me, you’ve wanted to try them too, unless you live in a one story house and then well … just log it away as semi-useful information, I guess.

Anyhoo, I’d love to pull up my carpet and find fabulous hardwood stairs to refinish underneath, but I’m betting it would instead be a party in particle board town down there.

Guess what? That can be fixed too! Observe Miriam’s staircase. Gorgeous! Step by step on her blog Reeves. One of the steps includes sitting on the stairs for 30 minutes eating cereal and waiting for the glue to dry. That’s like, my dream job.

And here’s an easier solution to a ho-hum staircase: paint the banister! No ripping up carpet, pulling out staples or swearing necessary! From Better After reader Debbie. Thanks ladies!

    Stair redos: great to look at but no fun at all to do.

    I have been getting your RSS feed too! Thanks for putting our stairs on here! I agree with the first comment we love looking at them but time consuming for sure!

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with your feed…as many others have said, Google pulls just fine.

    It might be something in the system that the person who informed you of such…

    I absolutely adore the beadboard stairs! I’m dealing with a beadboard addiction right now, and I would love to try this project…if only I had stairs in my house!

    I’ve dreamed of doing a fab staircase redo, but I only have a little dark one, that I’ve always thought would be stupid. But in reality, it looks so much like that bead board one, I’ve been inspired!

    (and now my hubby is going to hate my decor blog addiction even more!)

    What kind of wood did you use on the tread or the nosing. I am admiring your stairs to no end but I am curious on the wood.

    take care,
