I came across this photo of the stairs this morning. The bottom photo was taken on the day we bought the house. Look at that! Gross! I don't know how I almost forgot about those rubber treads. Here's what we've done so far:
- I scraped off the treads
- we refinished the hardwood floors and painted the upstairs floors (painting was so much cheaper and less time-consuming)
- we painted the upstairs paneling
- painted the stairs
- PRH knocked out the stairwell wall and removed the door at the bottom of the stairs
- he replaced drywall on the first floor.
