I just realized I haven’t told you about our NEW carpet!!!
We FINALLY got our new carpet last Saturday, and it was every bit as exciting as I had hoped! The installers arrived promptly at 6 a.m. (don’t worry, this is the time I told them to show up) and got right to work. There were 2 of them to do the whole house, and they made a pretty good system of it. Before we knew it, the pad was stapled down and ready to go. The whole process was pretty painless, but I did try to discretely stalk them as they were laying the carpet to get some photos…
Here is the carpet pad in place and ready to be stapled. Steve & I danced on when the installer went upstairs to lay the rest of the pad.
The installer rolling our the carpet. My first reaction…holy cow, our fireplace is red. PHEW, I still love the carpet (since I have never ever picked out carpet before, I was terrified it would arrive and I would hate it. Luckily, it’s as amazing in person as it was on the little sample)
Living room installation. I was enthralled watching the guy lay this, I’m pretty sure he thought I was a bit of a creeper because I sat at the breakfast bar and just stared at him…
Stairs with new carpet…do you need a reminder of the before?
BIG change actually, it took us a bit to visually adjust, but we think it looks much more inviting and we love just ploppin’ down on the carpet (heck, after the installers left, I took a 45 minute nap on the living room floor). All around, we’re excited that the carpet is in place because we’ve finally been able to at least clean out the garage and start unpacking!
