Updating our Basement Stairs

Hi y'all!  I am OBSESSED with our basement stairs!!!  I have not talked a lot about our basement because we have really just focused on the main level.  The previous owners "updated" the basement but they did some really weird layouts.  I am guessing this was to accommodate their grow room...  Gotta love Colorado...  The grow room does fit all of Mack's baby stuff nicely so I can't complain too much.  ;)  Here is what our basement stairs looked like when we moved in:

Beige...cream...brown...puke!  Now we totally lucked out because our neighbors are painters and were getting rid of the perfect 5 gallon container of grey paint.  We painted our entire basement for FREE! 

Now let's talk about this runner!  This project cost me a whopping $65 because of the free paint and supplies that we already had.  I am not going to do a full DIY post because this, this, and this post were great! 

Now I am going to clear up somethings that I was worried about... 

1.  Can I just use multiple runners from Homegoods/Ross/TJMaxx?  YES!  I was worried about the pattern matching up but I can hardly notice where the runners meet.  I had the hardest time finding the third runner and thankfully my Dad found one in Dallas!  Just call him the rug master, he said.  haha  Unfortunately, the runner he got was slightly different.  The pattern had a horizontal "medallions" vs a vertical ones. 

2.  Do I have to use a rug mat? Nope! 

3.  Do I have to use an electric stapler?  No, BUT check your stairs!  I really didn't want to spend the extra $40 on this project and our manual stapler worked just fine. 

4.  Do I need to color my staples with a sharpie {prior to using}? Yes!  Especially if your rug is dark.  You cannot see the staple at all when they were colored black!

Our basement is looking so much cleaner and fresher now.  It also matches the rest of our house now which I love!  I hope everyone is enjoying their short week and if I don't make it back by Thursday, Happy Thanksgiving!
