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.

    These look great! I tried them but the fabric paint just wouldn’t spread on the fruit. Too juicy! I did try to dry up but didn’t work. My last resort was to put the fruit in the oven to dry. Will try again tomorrow.Ambergris Caye real estate

    We should renovate our kitchen, and we are trying what to put in the windows and the doors. I like lots of light to pour into the kitchen so the fabric roman blinds won’t work as there is not enough space. Would be interested in your thoughts.awning contractors
