Basement Stairs

Until this past weekend, the basement stairs were covered in a 1970s green-yellow shag carpet. Certainly not something that we wanted to keep. When the carpet was removed, we found that the wood beneath was actually in relatively great condition, good enough that we want to just paint them and move on.

That's where you, our loyal readers, come in. We've found two ideas that we're thinking about trying. Take a look and vote on which style is your favorite. The poll is on the right side of the page (if you're in Google Reader, you'll have to click over to the actual site).

 Stair Style 1 - Painted Runner

 Stair Style 2 - Ombre Risers & Treads (but not black)

The poll closes at midnight on the 10th. Let us know what you think!


  1. Hands down the painted runner! But then again, I've never been a huge fan of ombre.

  2. I agree, the painted runner looks great!
