Stairway Heaven

I am a TOTAL sucker for stair runners, I mean, they truly make me weak in the knees (not an ideal condition for climbing stairs, LOL) but these "creative decor" ideas for your stairway, make putting in a runner seem like a cop-out (well, not really but they do put up quite a fight).  They also seem to earn points in the financial category, as I have this completely unsupported notion that stair runners are expensive... Are they?  In all honesty, I've never looked into it, but because they look so classy, I've just always assumed they'd be an element that would break the bank.  Anyway, whether they are affordable or are not, these stair decor ideas are pretty legit in their own right and many of them seem pretty doable for any level DIY-er.  

Have a look up and down at 'em:
