yeah, we're in the process of having new hardwood stairs built. but my contractor decided to install OSB risers with yellow pine treads. this was absolutely not the plan. we should've had matching hardwood treads and risers.
so anyway, what are the finishing options for this type of plywood risers? can they even be painted? it seems that the texture would show right through the paint and look bad. are there thin pine sheets we could fasten on top of the OSB?
here's a pic.
