The stairway in the home is one of the first things you see when you walk into this home.

When we changed the stain on the floors, the stairs had to be updated. We knew we had to change them, but, how? The first step….I know, too much….anyway, the first thing we thought to do, is change the stain on the tread.

After looking through many pictures, we decided changing both the tread and the riser would really update the stairway.

This photo was what saw from Inspired by this.com. Seeing it helped make the decision. The stained we picked is the same stain in this photo and even though the railing style isn’t the same, the color is.

This stairway is from one of the homes we lived in a few years ago. Once again, the riser is painted white and tread is stained.

We decided to stain the treads dark and paint the riser and sides white.

Kip’s Hardwood stained the tread and then after a week of drying and curing, J3 came back and finished up by painting the risers and the sides.

Happy with the partially finished product. It’s “partially” because we are thinking about adding trim work, the wood railing needs to be stained to match and we may even change the railing. But, for now, this change was the update that it needed.
