Stair Renovation

We are in the process of renovating our stairs.  I have always wanted a staircase with stained treads and white risers.  Well, we are in the process of creating just that.  And I am SO excited!  Here is a photo of our stairs, 5 years ago, when we first moved in.

One of the first things we did, after moving in, was to remove the carpet.  Under the carpet at the base of the stairs is particle board.  We've been living with that particle board for almost 5 years now and I can't wait till it is gone! Hard wood flooring will take its place!!

Here are the stairs minus a few treads.

What my hubby is kneeling on is the particle board.  We took out every tread and every riser.  Here is another view.

After all pieces were removed, we planed, sanded, primed, painted, stained, clear coated and are almost to the point of putting it all back together.  One more clear coat on the treads, and 2 coats of paint on the walls, reinstall all the pieces and the transformation will be complete!  I'm soooo excited!!!
