I am currently renovating my staircase, and I want the treads of the stairs to be stained wood while the remaining of the staircase will be painted white.
I have stripped the old paint of the treads and have now started to sand them smooth but the wood is very uneven in colour, especially down the middle of the tread where the was just varnish before.
Is it a case of the treads needing a lot more sanding to even them out or I am missing a step (no pun intended)?
You can see a photo of their current state here
Many Thanks Sandro
