Before and After. DIY Stairway Redesign. So easy. Step 1. Remove old carpet. (This is the hardest part, try not to get poked from the old tacks. Be careful!) Step 2. Paint steps. (You can do 1 color for easy, half the time painting, or alternate 2 colors on the rise and run. I alternated white and an espresso brown paint that matches my redone furniture. Regular interior paint will do as it's just the edges that aren't walked on.) Step 3. Staple on runners. (Shown is 3 runners from Target.)

Using a pattern of an antique rug that I have I started painting around 3 am and was finished up later that morning. I wanted the painted step to appear as if they had always been like that so once the paint was dry I brushed on and wiped off a couple of coats of dark wood stain. The stain helped to antique the steps. Once that was dry I brushed on a few coats of polyurethane. They have held up well to regular traffic.
