Home Decorating: How Do I Apply Leather On Iron Stairs
We have a black metal three-level staircase, where each stair is separated from the adjacent one (i.e., have gaps). We'd like to encase each stair individually in leather for aestetics and greater comfort on bare feet. I'm worried about it getting stretched overtime and becoming loose after it has been
Call a company that installs carpeting and ask them this question. I'd have the same concern you do about leather getting stretched overtime.
How To Re-Lay Carpet
I had a water leak in my basement due to a cracked foundation. Servicemaster came and dried out the carpet and removed the padding underneath. My husband repaired the crack and now I want to relay the carpet down. I think doing the carpet pad will be easy, but am not sure what I need to do to get the carpet back
Oh and it's about a 8 foot long section of carpet from the landing of my basement stairs down a hallway. Not the whole room.
One choice is to just lay it flat and tuck in edges this is the easiest but will give the poorest results.
Choice two requires the installation of tack strips along the walls if the old ones were removed. Next the carpet pad is placed on the floor and the carpet placed over that. Attach one wall to the tack strips and then begin to stretch and attach to the tack strips along the other walls. This process takes some trial and error if you have never done it before. There is a tool that is used to stretch with and it can be rented or purchased at a place like Home Depot.
It is important to get the same amount of stretch in both directions and evenly from side to side otherwise wrinkles will develop. If the padding underneath moves during this process it make make a bump that will not go away unless up raise the carpet and smooth it out. Staples of glue can be used to keep the pad in place during the process.
