Stair treads. I'd like to make some for my stairs and get rid of the old ugliest carpet you have ever seen. Any ideas. Thanks and happy new year.

RE: have you made these?

We are also considering options for our carpet-worn staircase. I have seen oak replacement treads at Home Depot. The package includes the stair tread, which is a laminate and nosing, and backboard. You can purchase them with either a finished edge for an open staircase, or an unfinished edge for a staircase that is closed on both sides. The cost was around $34 per stair.

RE: have you made these?

There are treads under the carpet.

Take it off and see what's under there. If it's wood, you can paint it or refinish it.
