Well, the mr and I decided it was high time to get rid of that nasty green carpet. You know, this stuff.
As if it isn't self-evident, I will give you a few reasons why you should never choose to install DARK FOREST GREEN Carpet throughout your whole house.
1. It's dark. And green.
2. It makes everything else look dark, too.
3. It doesn't go with anything. Um, hello? Neutral??
4. It's ugly.
Here are a few reasons why our carpet in particular is disgusting and needs to be replaced.
1. It's DARK FOREST GREEN.
2. It is NOT soft.
3. It is NOT cushy.
4. It has no pile, texture, fuzziness, what have you... no, that's kind of a lie. It has a texture. It's called UGLY.
5. It has been spilled on time and again. When we moved in, we knew we were getting rid of it as some point. So we were never careful with food, drink, paint, markers, etc, etc. It will be an adjustment when we have our "REAL" carpet.
|What IS that???|
Why is it wonderful? No more ugly carpet, much lighter feeling rooms, better for photos, better color to coordinate with our furniture, the list goes on.
Why is this horrible? This is why:
|my family room, in upheaval.|
Oh, also, because we will soon have carpet that we love, we decided we better get ourselves in gear and paint the family room as we have been meaning to do for some time. Heaven forbid we spill red paint on the carpet we actually like.
Hence, chaos. We are sleeping on mattresses on floors,
we have moved our dressers to the living room (it's not easy getting dressed in the living room without feeling like an exhibitionist)
|the one area without green carpet.|
|Why yes, that IS my bed leaning on my piano.|
Our couches are all in the basement. I refused to go without internet (because you know I am addicted) so I made mr hook it up in the basement in my craft area.
I will spare you the view of the basement, just know that it has been rendered virtually unusable, as soon most of our house will be (what with tack strips sticking up all over and all).
Somehow, we will finish. Somehow we will survive.
Oh, and here's what we've got so far.
Plus Yummy Monday on Tuesday. Or Wednesday. Or sometime soon...
