eys's picture

Hello everyone...I'm new so this is my first post thingy..k..I bought a house that is approx 13 yrs old so it's my ongoing decor project..anyhow..the staircase is beautiful..wrap around scarlet o'hara (smaller scale) with yucky oak railing & spindles..the stairs themselves are covered in the most god awful dusty rose pink I have ever seen...makes me think back to the early ninties..I think I had the lipstick to match that carpet. What I want to do is rip that carpet up..underneath is just builder's wood not oak..I want to fill it, sand it paint the tops dark walnut the railing walnut ..the rest white then finish with a sisal runner going down the middle...any of you done a project with the builder stairs like that?? just wondering how it turned out and what filler, primer and paint to use. tx EYS :)
