As promised, here is the stair runner tutorial. The installers said it was fine for me to take pictures while they worked, but I was afraid of wearing out my welcome with questions. So, I kept those to a minimum. Hopefully this tutorial will give you at least a good overview of what they did.
three runners from Ballard to cover the stairs. They were on sale for $35 each, bargain!
Next came the padding cut to fit perfectly in front of the stripping and ending just shy of the width of the runner. Normally a runner is one continuous piece, but in this case it was three separate pieces. So, the installers started in the center of the stairs and worked there way up and down to hide the ends.
