I added a runners carpet to the staircase and wished to secure it in place with the decorative metal stair rods. I quickly found that metal ladder bars come in two classes; Cheap and cheap looking or expensive, up to $ 50 a step. During my research (Google images) I found a couple of examples of wooden ladder bars and decided to make my own. For fasteners, I wanted a classic look without exposed screws heads so I distressed bolts to create an antique world effect.
