Yes it was thanks. Our house is 1950's - I assume it is expensive to do?

Not too terribly, when you figure that a solid oak or mahogany tread will last 60+ years - If you compare that to the cost of replacing carpet not he stairs every 5 years or so- it's not expensive.

I can think of 2 ones from the 1800s I know with original stair treads. They are worn but it add great character to the home!

You can find a rather large range of these during the Halloween season at Michael's arts & craft stores.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Stairs That Really Go Someplace
Small decals or painted pictures achieve some of the same effect as the tiles above, but they're a lot less permanent. Love these mice!
Between Naps on the Porch added this to 12 Fresh Alternatives to the Carpeted Staircase
It's August now...which means Halloween is just a few months away. I saw these in Michaels last October and unfortunately, passed them up. As I recall, they were under the Martha Stewart brand. I hope they have them available again this year. Total fun! Hope this Ideabook gives you some fun alternatives to the carpeted stairway. Remember, it's just paint. If you don't like it, you can just paint right over it. Or, even carpet them again. Nahhhh.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Decorating for Halloween
I saw these last year in Michaels...they were under the Martha Stewart name/brand. When I came across this pic here at houzz, I was kicking myself for not buying them. I checked Michaels again this year and they have them in once more. If you want them for your Halloween decorating, get them now. They go fast...I speak from experience. You may be able to find them online, too.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to What Says "Quality" In A Home? Wooden Tread Staircases
And because it is nearly Halloween, of course I had to include this staircase in the Ideabook!
If you're not ready to commit to your wackier riser-decor ideas, try adding wall decals that you can easily peel off in case you change your mind.
Becky Harris added this to There's a Mouse in the House
These homeowners are playing a joke with mouse silhouettes; they've decorated the stairs with engaging compositions that are sure to be a conversation starter.
Summer Baltzer added this to 8 Ways to Include the Kids in Your Design
5. Have a sense of humor. We all want beautiful interiors, but that doesn't mean that we always have to take design choices so seriously. Even the most serious interiors can use a little surprise.
Fred Albert added this to In Praise of Silliness
Eeek! These mice silhouettes are easily removable — but who'd want to take them off? They might not be ideal for a formal entry (except at Halloween), but they'd look great on the back steps or the basement stairs. Plus, they'd put a smile on your face every time you walked upstairs.
