How To Improve Rental Stairway?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I just moved into a rented house and the stairs to the upstairs bedroom are kind of a disaster. Not only do the walls have tons of scuffs on them, but the carpet is in bad shape as well. There are a good number of stains, and the edges that meet the wall are fraying. Because this is a rental, I can't rip up the carpet (I really wish I could) and my budget is pretty tight. I know I need to paint the walls and clean the carpet, but is there any kind of edging that I can easily do inexpensively?
