Here's what our staircase looked like before all the water damage work began. It was a favorite place for the kids to play...and still is.
Here it is prepped for the tearout of all the upstairs ceilings and walls to begin.
There's still some work to be done with paint and the handrails. (they're not the final color they will be and they're still not attached completely)
- We like the look of nice stair runners. (and were excited to find out they are WAY cheaper than we anticipated)
- The back of the stairs always look icky and constantly need to be repainted or cleaned with all the scuff marks we get without a runner.
- It will be less slippery and with all our kids, that's a big deal.
Which is your favorite?
