We were quoted £3k to do our stairs so decided to do it ourselves for way cheaper – I'm obsessed with how it turned out | The Sun

A COUPLE who were quoted £3,000 to transform their stairs decided to try and do it themselves instead.

Dani explained that they were sick of the dark grey carpet on their stairs, so got a quote to redo it.

But when it came back as £3k, they decided to give it a go without any professional help.

They started by ripping up the grey carpet on the stairs, and paintingthem white.

Then, they bought some self-adhesive stair pads from Amazon, which they attached to the top.

In total, the transformation cost them just £230 – and that included the paint too.

In the caption of the TikTok video, Dani revealed further details of the products they'd used for the makeover.

She also added: "I’ve also bought some carpet tape to stick the backs down, which they don’t necessarily need as I’m really impressed with how secure they are – but I’m going to try anyway.

"This DIY would also be a good temporary / short term makeover too as the stair pads are easy to remove if you wanted to."

People were quick to praise Dani for the transformation, with one writing: "Superb transformation!"
