New Carpet

In the midst of the craziness of april, we got new carpet. We had a slight toilet issue last month-  nothing big, just gushing sewage onto some of our carpet. But I forgot to post some pics of our fresh new carpet!

Old carpet, empty room.
Okay, so maybe I'll elaborate on the story. Toilet practically explodes one Friday night, we spend the night in a hotel. The next day the plumber fixes it, but the carpet is still really gross, so we rip up the soaked parts. New carpet is needed. After a week of shopping, we order carpet. A few weeks later inlaws get into town. The second day of their visit I get a call that says we can either have the new carpet installed in the next hour, or we can wait 10 days for another appointment.

Cut to 30 mintuets later and we have the above and below pics.
My inlaws are so cool and literally jumped into action and helped me move all the furniture into the other room within minutes. Which was good, because the carpet guys called a few minutes later.

This is our new carpet!!
We went with Home Depot, Platinum Plus Collection, Sandy-Beach. I think it does look like a sandy beach. How soothing. It is so soft and plush to lay on, and it doesn't show dirty puppy feet!

I think it looks pretty good all put together again.

Ooh, having sewage on the carpet is definitely no fun at all. So icky! Well, it's too bad about the old carpet but at least you now have a nice new one to enjoy! There's no use crying over a ruined one, after all.
