This makes our new carpet (installed by previous owners) dirty, and I do not like cleaning dirty carpet. In fact, I’m not really sure if it is ever really clean when I try.
I favor wood and stone and even linoleum over any form of carpet….area or wall to wall.
So this year I started ripping up the carpeting on the stairs (my least favorite area to vacuum). The stairs are made of hardwood, but the years of carpet staples were not kind to it, so I puttied the wounds and painted them over in white. Then I taped it off and painted a green “runner” down the center. I used “oops paint” for this project, so I have no idea the colors name. I have the BEST luck finding colors in the oops section of hardware stores.
Everything is semi gloss so I can wipe it down once a week. I kinda love it!
