Two Little Steps

Another small step in my remodel project - the stairs leading from the front hall into the family room.

I removed the ruined carpet only to discover that the treads, at 10-1/2 inches deep, were almost flush with the risers. My initial plan to paint them wouldn't work. So I bought a couple hickory treads, 11-1/2 inches wide, finished them with water-borne urethane made for floors, and installed them. Also touched up the trim with some Duration in Extra White.

They aren't terrific, but they are certainly better than before.
