stair carpet success!!

Thanks to the invaluable information on this site I am very happy to report that I got up the courage and ripped out the old worn carpet on my stairs, bought a beautiful carpet remnant and used it to replace the old carpet. I painted the stairs and hallway prior to recarpeting. I had 14 stairs and 2 small landings to cover. If I do say so myself, I did a very professional job - although it took me the better part of a whole weekend. The carpet, pad and tack strips cost me less than $150.00 - and I had fun too. My friends couldn't believe that I did it myself - I still can't!! Although I do have a few battle wounds on my fingers and feet - those carpet tacks are sharp! Thanks guys, couldn't have done it without the help and support of this site!
