10 Weeks to Tip Top Shape
Week 3: Staircase Makeover
This week we're taking a look at an interior makeover that can be done for less that $200!
I had a staircase at my previous home that I just wasn't happy with. So with a little elbow grease, patience and time, I was able to give it a makeover that improved the front foyer.
With 6 simple steps, the front foyer went from dated and drab, to stunning and chic.
Step 1: Rip up the carpet....this is not that difficult but takes some muscle
Step 2: Removal of all the staples.....this is so tedious... there are 100's of them....ugh!!
Step 3: Filling holes in the stair treads, stringers and risers
Step 4: Sanding and sanding and sanding......paying close attention to sanding the area that is going to be touched the most which is the top of the railing.
Step 5: Painting.......pick some good paint. This is important. If anyone wants to know what I used just send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 6: Admire the finished product. What a difference it made in our entrance way and we did this just before our home went on the market!
