We have 5 kids and a living room with basically white carpet. Those two things just really don’t mix. For the last 6 years we have been routinely cleaning our carpets, to try and fight the high traffic dirt AND we even bought a carpet cleaner so we wouldn’t have to rent one anymore. (BISSEL carpet cleaners ROCK). And on and off for the last few years we have talked about taking out the carpet and replacing it with laminate. This past weekend we finally did… I LOVE IT! It turned out so great and it wasn’t too much of a headache we had a couple of friends come over and help.
Old nasty carpet with old nasty trim.
After we torn out the carpet, pad and tack strips, I spent the day repainting everything. I just repainted the same color but it made a HUGE difference. Everything looks so fresh and clean again!
And this is how it looks now. Great eh? I wish I could have gotten pictures before they put the furniture back in, but alas I didn’t.
We replaced our old nasty trim with new taller trim, I love how that turned out too. I kind of have a new look planned for this room, hopefully it will all come together.
New trim, I still have to do the touch up work on the trim but you get the idea.
ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GET A GREAT THROW RUG??? I have looked at Costco, Home Depot and even Wal*Mart, with no luck. I need suggestions!!
