Refinishing a staircase
Is it possible to sand down a staircase and put a darker stain on it. I have a light oak staircase and am going to pull up my carpet in the upstairs and put down engineered flooring that will be darker. The staircase has spindles and plywood risers. I am going to put carpet just on the risers but I want to stain the wood spindles etc on the staircase. My neighbor told me just to replace the staircase but there is nothing structure wise wrong with it . Just the wrong color. Opinions please.
