Hello friends! If you have followed my blog for a while, you may know that this is the first house we have lived in that has a ton of carpet in it. And that's been TOUGH to get used to. We have completely gotten rid of the carpet downstairs, after replacing it with gorgeous laminate flooring in our family room and in our girls' playroom. And now we are going to continue the trend of removing the carpet, LITERALLYup the stairs.

Here is what our staircase currently looks like. It's pretty DRAB and BORING. Worse, there aren't pretty hardwoods underneath the carpet, I am afraid. Our staircase was not built for beauty. It was built to be covered by carpet its entire life. Little did itknow that the Agrusos would be moving in eventually :)

All that is about to change, my friends!!!! Nowpersonalized baby blankets, let's take a look at some staircases that have inspired the look we are going for, shall we?

You know how opposed we are to hiring people to do our renovations for us, right? Well, that sent me on a frantic hunt to figure out a way to do this project ourselves while achieving PROFESSIONAL looking results. In the end, I found onecompany and one process that will give us the professional results we are looking for, but will also allow us to complete the installation ourselves.

Drumroll please…;. MeetNuStair?! NuStairis the original stair overlay systemwhere you don’t have to remove the frame nosing. NuStairoriginated the retread stairs process. Remodeling stairs with NuStair is a straight forward and simple process that can usually be completed in about one day {can I get an AMEN?!}. It eliminates the necessity to remove the nosing from your original staircase, which saves tons of time and mess.

After stumbling across NuStair's system and website, I took the time to watch this video {detailed installation instructions start at the 6:22 mark}. I was totally sold. This is exactly what we had been looking for.

NuStair stair treads are Amish American made in Pennsylvania using select or better American hardwoods. Best of all,NuStairoffers a Lifetime Structural Warranty and a 10 Year Warranty on its products. That's amazing. It carries a large variety of colors and species including Red Oak, White Oak, Maple, Hickory, Walnut, Brazilian Cherry, American Cherry. You can check out all of the stair tread colors and species here. We have chosen unfinished Red Oak so that we can stain it ourselves to match the laminate flooring we have been replacing the carpeting with.

NuStair originated this stair remodeling method after five years of research and development and owns two patents. I noticed that there are some similar systems out there on the market, but after personally discussing NuStair with the owner and inventor, Steve Mott {talk about great customer service}, I learned that those other systems are inferior attempts to accomplish what the NuStair system nails. Thanks, but no thanks…; I would rather go with thepatented original!

We are SUPER excited to get started, although I do dread having to remove the zillion carpet staples. Fortunately, my mom and step-dad are in town as I type thisto help us with our girls while we knock this project out. I cannot WAIT to share out experience, and of course, dramatic reveal with you all :)

Who is excited? Has anyone else been reluctant to DIY their staircase renovation? Are you considering it now?

Disclaimer: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received free product from NuStairto complete my project. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Snuggling up toasty warm isn't solely a girl's phenomenon, boys get cold too and while they may shy away from wrapping a blanket around themselves in the presence of others, in their bedroom they also like to dive under the duvet as if they in Winter hibernation.
