Before and After: A $60 Carpet-to-Hardwood Stair Makeover

Before and After: A $60 Carpet-to-Hardwood Stair Makeover
The Serene Swede

Nasty, commercial-style carpet wasn't exactly what this DIY-er called "homey". So, with a few tools and a bunch of sweat, she turned this previously carpeted staircase into a shining entry focal point -- and all for $60!

Nice job. Pine is a "softwood" you know. The title makes it look like you don't know what you're talking about and doesn't educate readers. Yes, it's inexpensive and easier to cut, but you usually use actual hardwoods (oak, pecan, walnut, mahogany, maple, teak, etc.) on stairs so that wear longer. No rules says you can't use pine, poplar, fir, etc., but there's a reason they have different classifications for lumber hardness.
