I was happy to see that the hardwood underneath looked just as good as the hardwood on the side of the steps. My hubby on the other hand wasn't happy about the spontaneous project. And after 20 minutes or so, I realized that this is going to be a very time consuming and labor intensive project. Pulling up the rug isn't too bad, just requires a little muscle. The time consuming and frustrating part is pulling up the 50 plus staples per step with pliers. No fun.
These babies are going to look good once they are nakey!
I'll end this post with something Christmassy and pretty, the shelves at the end of the stairs decorated for the first time for Christmas!
