DESPITE being one of the most well-loved parts of our home, staircases have a tendency to get shabby pretty quickly if you don't take good care of them.
Well if you've been putting off replacing the carpet for longer than you'd care to admit (guilty as charged), one woman's genius home transformation may just make you think twice about calling in the professionals.
Posting in the Facebook group Extreme Budget DIY & Life Hacks, the woman wrote:"I was fed up of my staircase being drab so I decided to freshen it up."
Sharing incredible before-and-after photos with the group's 30,000 members, the woman explained: "I took up the carpet, wood filed imperfections, sanded, painted with some white satinwood that I had leftover and put down a stair runner."
But while that may sound like a lot to DIY novices, this super simple job could be done in one afternoon – and it only cost the user £10 in total.
The woman simply purchased three rolls of the trendy monochrome liner for £2.99 each and used a Poundland spray adhesive to stick it in place.
Singing the praises of the "wipe clean and anti-slip" kitchen liner, the woman added: "It's a vast improvement to what what I had before and it's something I was able to do myself.
"It will do as a quick fix until I can decide on whether to go to the expense of carpeting."
But judging by the group's response to the stunning staircase, we think she'd be better off sticking to her chic, swift fix.
