At the Ballesteros residence we removed the old newel posts and installed new box newels. We replaced the handrail, and installed our powder coated 19/1, 19/2, and 18/3 balusters. The new stair rail has a rustic modern ascetic that can’t be beat.
Removing carpet from stairs and replacing it with wood stair treads is a totally doable DIY. This staircase makeover was accomplished in a weekend and looks like a professional--proof that a staircase remodel can be a DIY job.
