I love new carpet



So, even though the new carpeting process is hellacious ( I don't think that is a swear word), We have made it through and have only a little furnature to put back where it goes. As we do it, I am working on making everything look like a model home. Yeah! This first picture is what stunned me - I have NEVER liked the view from the top of my stairs, as it has always contained green shag carpet! But now, it is beautiful!

Secondly, the family room looks positively huge with no furniture (but the fireplace really needs to be cleaned!
The first picture shows the true color and texture of the carpet. The second one was so dark I had to fiddle with it, so the carpet looks a bit strange.
I am now working on figuring out where to put things so people won't see them - a basket full of bookmobile books, file folders of important papers and homework that we need all the time, snow clothes and gloves, christmas presents. I am thinking under bed storage boxes and rubbermaid totes.

It is just amazing the transformation your house has undergone since I first came there almost nine years ago. It looks wonderful!
