carpet!!!!! woo woo
This past weekend we spent a few hours wondering what was going on upstairs as the installers used hammers, bats, possibly guns and maybe a bomb or two to shake the whole house and pound the carpet down.
We decided to splurge a little on the carpet and got a wonderful cut burber and a nice pad. the carpet feels really lush and looks great with the upstairs paint choices. We were lucky and got the whole thing in with no seams. So far the choice to go with Carpet Exchange seems to have been a good one. We initially planned on doing a lot more shopping but found something we both liked at the first store and saw no need to keep looking.
The carpet is currently shedding some of it's nasty smell and making Mark high, but we hope to be sleeping in a real bedroom very soon. The carpet is also shedding some of the extra threads and we're still working on collecting those. After trying to vaccum most of them up Mark got to perform an autopsy on the vaccum and discovered that it held an accurate archeological history of Jennifer's time in Colorado. After removing two cats, a sandbox and part of a recycling bin Mark was able to breathe some life back into the vaccum and it's getting counseling before taking another crack at the new carpet.
We hope to find a new bed to fit the space and get it up there right about the same time the carpet stops killing brain cells.
This weekend also brought some more progress on the trim. A few more pieces to go and we're done! Three cheers for finishing the bedroom!
