Well, my giddiness about the upcoming new carpet wasn’t undeserved. …
I LOVE IT.
Worth every month and year of the wait.
We still have lots of boxes to put away in the master bedroom and Rene’s room, so I didn’t want to snap pics there yet. (Plus I’m without my regular camera — gah! I feel like I’m without my left arm!) But anyway, here’s a shot with my lame cell-phone camera looking down the hallway toward Nate’s room:
It’s a cream-color carpet with brown specs in it (to hide dirt!). It’s a slight “shag” (as Superman calls it) (… but really it’s a “frieze”). It goes surprisingly well in Nate’s steel-blue room, as well as in the rest of the upstairs rooms, which all have butterscotch-colored walls a little lighter than that hallway wall in the picture.
I might not even mind vacuuming for a little while! : )
