The stair treads are stained and then a clear coat. I prefer to stain, so that you can see depth and the grain of the wood.

Building the cabinet is pretty easy. The carpenter should confirm the structure below the stairs and if it requires reframing.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

greige/Fluegge Interior Design, Inc. added this to Stylish Responsibility: Decorating with Eco-Friendly and Vintage Furnishings
Beautiful vintage chair mixes so well with the classic and somewhat contemporary lines of the stairway.
Kirsten added this to The Sumptuous Academic
The strong black against the white walls reminds the academic of black type against a white page. It is visually striking and romantic.
Becky Harris added this to What's Happened to the TV Room
I found this image by searching "TV Room" I have looked at this photo about a hundred times and never noticed the TV before!
Kit Pollard added this to Living Like Coco
This room starts with the clean Chanel colors, then incorporates a little technology and a little rough-around-the-edges (the chair) for a very cool result.
Becky Harris added this to Rocking Chairs: Not Just for Nana
This antique Boston Rocker fits right into a fresh modern space.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to How to Update a Traditional Staircase
A black newel post, railing and stair treads take this stairwell from country to country cool.
Although this photo is not specific to the day of tricks and treats, the worn vintage rocking chair has no problem entertaining the idea that it can slide by as Halloween-inspired decor. Smooth move, my friend.

Old painted newel post looks surprisingly great. Also, a solution to the notch in ours might be to fill it, putty it and sand it, then put a block like this one underneath to make fitting the rail easier.
