So...When we bought the house there was this awful burgundy runner that when down the stairs. Yes, it kept the stairs warm in the winter was a magnet for hair, lint and anything else. It was so hard to keep clean so I decided to tear it up:) Here is the pic of the ugly burgundy runner:

Then I was left with multi colored stair risers and treads. This is the moment where I wondered what I had gotten myself into!! So for now I just re-painted the risers to clean it up a bit and then I will see what I can find to put on the stairs to cover the faded middle section:) Below are some before and after pics:

Hopefully I will be able to find some kind of treads for the steps that will suit my taste. I was thinking of maybe some small braided mats...if I can find some cheap
