new carpet

Here's a little sneek peek of the new craft/sewing room. I just love the River's Edge paint color by Behr! And as you can see, I found the perfect carpet. We get our carpet at a carpet outlet store that sells remnants. This same carpet is almost twice the cost at a Home Depot. And get this! I found a commercial grade carpet that actually has flecks of aqua in the design! I couldn't believe it! I chose commercial carpet because I have things in the room on rollers, so it sure makes it easy to roll them in and out. And it will be easy to find pins and needles in this carpet too.

I am sooo thrilled with the shade of green that my sweet husband painted the new guest room. It was a can of oops paint that I had laying around for a year or so. The carpet in this room and the hallway are also remnants... a short shag that is so soft on the toesies. Koda thinks so too.
My sister Kathy will be choosing carpet soon, so this post is for her to see what I chose... and for you to get a glimpse of the reveal that is to come in a few days. Yesterday I started the process of putting the rooms together and I am having such a blast playing house!

Commercial carpet cleaning does not have to be a a pain in the wallet if scheduled on a regular basis and you will save in the long run plus breathe much easier.
