On Thursday, we did this again:It's a party in the dining room! We can eat breakfast while touching the couches AND the piano!
Imagine much giggling and climbing and "doghouse" pillow fort building.
The first install job was horrendous. Really.
When we finally decided we couldn't take it anymore and called Home Depot, they sent someone out to check it and told us they couldn't believe we'd lived with it for that long.
We're talking gaps, bulges, frizzies, seams, everywhere.
Plus, I wasn't digging the beige on beige on beige look we had going. It was pretty much exactly what I have been trying to avoid with this home.
But, since repainting the walls would take me years,
and Home Depot was replacing our carpet anyway,
we decided to go darker.
I love it.
Now this is the "Ahh, I love my carpet, come see it everyone!" feeling I'd been missing the first time around.
And as much fun as the kids have when we cram all the furniture into the dining room,
I'm really hoping we don't have to do that again for a long, long time.
Our piano is ridiculously heavy.
