Pinner said..."Ordered 3 runners from Wayfair at $35 a piece. I love the look and it only took 3 or 4 days total (including painting the treads Annie Sloan Graphite and the risers white)! Took Eric and I to do the nailing part. Even with measuring each step it takes two people to make sure the rug is in place. DIY stair runner ----- basement staircase. paint white. use a runner...."
