It’s official- we have new carpet!! Whoo!! It took about 3.5 hours and there was a lot of scraping and hammering- it sounded like our whole second story was going to come crashing down. But it’s in and looks awesome, so I’m going to sit back and let the photos do the talking here…
Carpet pad on the stairs- we went with the Nike pad made of recycled running shoes
Laying out the new carpet- they blew off the driveway before starting. Once they cut up the carpet they rolled it up and carried it up the stairs- maybe I need to become a carpet layer and get super buff?
The stairs all done!! Not 5 minutes after I snapped this photo, the cat ran up and tried to use it as a scratching post- if I catch her doing that again I’m chopping her legs off (not really, but seriously cat- you have your own scratching post)!!
The upstairs guest bedroom.
Ahhh- it looks so great. The color is perfect and it’s so squishy and clean!! Now I just have to go around and re-paint all the baseboard- this carpet is a lower profile than the other carpet so there’s some unpainted spots showing now- oof. My least favorite thing to do.
What do you think?
