These are photos of how we got rid of our 1987 Pink carpet open tread stairs and enclosed them and install wood laminate and a new runner rug.

We added dark stained corner trim board to each stair edge to give it a nice finish, before we added a runner carpet. Stairs Edge, Trim Board, Stair Makeover, Pink Carpet, Wood Laminate, Wood Trim, Staircases, Rug Runner, Corner

We used 4 runner rugs I found at Wal-Mart. (The pattern was perfect to go with our theme in our home.) Attached rug padding underneath runners before install rugs. As we staple gunned rugs down we cut each rug to fit together where the tread meets the riser. When finished you can't even tell where each rug meets up. We still have some wood trim to add before this home DIY project is comeplete. Will add additional photos when done.

No more carpet and we have added a stopper board to every tread, so we can enclose the stairs. Stair Makeover, Pink Carpet, Wood Laminate, Rug Runner, Stairs, Canning, Board, Home Decor, Stairway
