When we bought our house back in 2000, the staircase came with an awful striped rug. Let's see if I can find a picture of it.....
....oh yes, here it is.
That's a beauty, isn't it? I think I could have won an "Ugliest Rug in America" contest with this one.
Around 2003-2004, we removed that awful rug and had this berber rug put in.
Can I just say that I am so over this rug? Ugh. I've wanted to rip it off the stairs for some time now. It looks so dirty and we have had it cleaned professionally, which I thought made it look dirtier, if that's even possible.
I decided to gently mention the topic to my husband. To my shock & surprise, he is all for ripping the rug out. Apparently, he hates it too, and quite possibly, hates it even more than I do.
We know what lies under that berber and believe me, it ain't pretty! As I recall, it's painted....and several different colors at that.
So, I shall begin gathering inspiration, reading tutorials, etc. etc. etc., on painted stairways.
If anyone has any ideas, suggestions or wise advice (or even some advice that is completely unwise,) let me have it, I'll listen to anything right now.
A happy weekend to all. We are on Mid-Winter Recess all next week....yippee!!!
