Hi friends! About a year ago, I tackled this project and just recently realized I never shared about it here on the blog.

it’s no secret that the best way to jazz up a staircase is to add a stair runner. Rug runners add interest, they soften a staircase for sound and safety, and protect your stair treads . . . AND, best of all, it’s a fairly easy DIY.

Before, when we bought this house

The staircase in our fixer upper was less than ideal, I’m pretty sure it was fully carpeted at one time, but it was looking pretty rough when we got here (See above).

So for a relatively quick fix, I went ahead and stained the treads (like I did here) with Minwax Gel Stain, and painted the risers black.

After: I updated the stairs with stain and paint
