There were actually a couple questions there in your comment. You can do this if the structure of your stair allows it. If you already have a stair in place, you most likely will have to modify the structure below it and rebuild the entire stair. Your current closet shouldn't make it easier or harder, it's typical for wood stairs to have empty spaces below them.

It is a clear catalyzed lacquer. Try out a few samples, we didn't keep track of which one we picked.
