A full collection of tutorials for a staircase makeover. A DIY project of removing carpet and creating wood stairs with a runner.
Ever since we moved in to this house I’ve wanted to remove the carpet on our stairs. I have been DIY’ing all of the areas around our entryway staircase and this carpet continued to stick out like a sore thumb. Check out how I did this staircase makeover on a very tight budget.
This staircase makeover is a carpet to wood stairs transition. This process included a few steps:
- removing carpet from the stairs
- painting and staining the pine wood stair treads
- making DIY risers
- adding a stair runner by creating a corner runner rug
Check out the tutorials for each of these steps of the staircase makeover below.

This tutorial will walk you through the tools and the process you need for how to remove carpet from stairs.
Painting and Staining Pine Stair Treads
Staining pine stair treads can be tricky, this paint + stain combo will show you how you can make pine stairs beautiful on a budget.
These DIY stair risers made out of 1/8″ hardboard are a great budget-friendly option for a staircase makeover going from carpet to wood.
This staircase makeover ended up being such a success, and for such a fraction of the price that I was quoted for a professional staircase carpet to wood transition.
This entire staircase (runners included) cost less than $300! What a great and cost-effective update to a home.
