    At this rate, you can probably buy the steps for less than it would cost to build them!

    Where can I get pieces of carpet to put on kiddie stairs? Don't they make carpet that is self-adhesive? I'm not good with this home improvement stuff.

    My mom had luckily just had new carpet installed and so she was able to just use a couple of scraps. I bet you can call your local flooring store...they almost always have scraps that they'll sell for next to nothing, or even just give it away.

    Wow...that's a GREAT idea!!!


    Ask for old samples at the carpet store. We have a couple squares with non-skid backing we use on the cat's feeding station table (our solution for keeping Pixie out of their crunchies - plus it's under a window for them to look out.)

    Or just buy a square or 2 of self adhesive carpeting from Home Depot!

    I thought the carpet remnants at PetSuppliesPlus looked like nice carpeting for a low price, but I guess it would be difficult to cut it and try to glue it on the steps.

    Have you got any carpet shops nearby, I normally go and see if they are getting rid of their square samples....

    I bought a "utility" rug at Target at the same time I bought my kiddie steps (pine ones that match my furniture ...).

    Depending what color you want, it was not expensive. For some reason the charcoal grey was $3.99 - it is basically the size of a door mat, but would look okay on the steps. I wanted something lighter that would blend with the wood color, so I got a tan one for $5.99.

    I still have to find time to cut them up and glue them on though ...
