Here are the steps (pardon the pun):

 

  1. First you will have to scrape up any remaining glue with a putty knife.  
  2. Then remove any nails or staples - using needle nose pliers.
  3. sand the surface with a power sander down to bare wood.
  4. apply either stain/polyurethane  or prime/paint to the finished steps.
