When you have overnight guests coming...

Do not rip out carpet. Clean your house. Relax and prepare to be a good host.

After redoing the bathroom the carpet on our stairs/landing was pretty much toast (even more toast than when we moved in)

So we ripped it off today. The landing revealed some nice hardwood. The stairs... well it made our entryway resemble the gates to hell...

So we went to home depot and picked up 5 cheap 6'x28" runners and some heavy duty staples for about $150. After 1.5 hours of work we now have the following (trinity approved) stairs:

This was a crazy thing to do and now we still have to clean the house after all the renos... but damn it looks good (at least until we get around to fixing up the stairs properly).
