DIY Vintage Staircase Runner

Since we moved into our house nearly three years ago, I’ve been toying with the the idea of adding a carpet runner to our staircase – if only for the practical purpose of softening the sounds of shoes, particularly heels, loudly clanking up and down our wooden steps. Honestly, sometimes it sounds as if a stampede of elephants is descending upon our household. But after seeing the ingenious way Megan Pflug, the DIY expert at One Kings Lane, installed a series of vintage runners in the staircase of Anthony D’Argenzio’s, of one of my favorite Instagram accounts Zio & Sons, foyer, this looming project is an absolute must do. I am officially on the hunt for vintage runners. Stay tuned . . .

    Looks fantastic–hope you can find enough of the rugs to do a similar job–love it. How are they joined? Overlapping at the riser? It’s very artistic.
