On our stairs, the carpet is absolute rubbish. So much in fact that it looks 100 times better if I just pulled it up and left the floor bare. House was built in 1974. The wood floor underneath the carpet is in good shape. Im wondering if it is worth the effort to try and refinish it. If you look on the 2nd pic, the flooring overhangs each step by about 2 inches. I have no problem doing the work, filling the holes, etc as I am a paint and body man by trade but I came here to get an idea of what everyone else would do. Is this a good idea? Does this look like your usual hardwood project? Thanks.
