Staircase refinishing

Refinishing the staircase took a looooong time but it is sooooo worth it! I assumed we would refinish the wood and stain it, but Ross actually suggested we paint the riser white along with the spindles. It does look very crisp and clean; it looks great! Ross ended up stripping the entire staircase to get rid of the pukey pink paint color, and all the carpet staples came out one by one. Take a look:
