After this is grey floor paint on the top of the steps and wood effect wall paper on the lower part of the step, I'm very pleased with the finale this project was surprisingly easy and straightforward However the prep did take a while sanding with sheet paper and a lot of filler for the old carpet nails and staples
Tone on Tone: I chose a wool sisal style staircase runner with very narrow binding. It's installed about 3 inches from the sides (and cut out around the newel post) in the Hollywood style, which is tailored and bespoke. The big area rug is the same, but with a different binding. Larger area rugs do wonders for small spaces!
