Before and after

We moved into our house four and a half years ago.
When we moved in, there were two things we were going to do "first thing":
1. Get rid of the blue rooster wallpaper in the kichen.
2. Get rid of the 20 year old, very stained brown carpet in the living room.
It took us 3.5 years to get rid of the blue rooster wallpaper.
And as of yesterday, 4.5 years later, the brown carpet is gone.
It will not be missed.
And really, you cannot tell from these photos how stained it was...

And the new, very neutral carpet.
Which we love...

And now I become carpet nazi...which was the main reason we didn't replace it until now.
No more food. No more drink. Mostly this will be enforced with Paul.

That looks so good! And I'd be totally afraid to walk on it.
