How to convert carpeted stairs to wood treads DIY

If you’ve installed carpet on your stairs, you know that it can wear out quickly, especially if your stairs are a high-traffic area. The previous owners of our home had laid white carpet on our staircase that leads to the second floor where all the bedrooms are located. We use it every day, multiple times a day. It was stained, matted and showed EVERYTHING.

Also, our staircase is the first thing you see when you walk through the front door. We wanted the first look at our home to look clean and welcoming.
