We are looking to resurface our carpeted stair case and am wondering if any one had had any experience doing this themselves. We wouldliketo match up with our existing Mirage hardwood floors and am looking fro some sort of 'kit' that may make it a bit simpler? We have 12 steps, two landings plus one rounded step at the bottom. The steps are open on one side with spindles mounted directly on the step ( not boxed stairs). Next question- if the upper level is all carpeted in the same carpet do we hard wood the upper hall and leave the bedrooms or leave the entire upper level carpeted and finish the hardwood stair resurfacing at the top step?
