Lots of work

I know I have been gone for a few days without posting. This is what I have been busy doing...
We moved all of our furniture and things that were on the carpet and moved it into the kitchen, bathrooms or garage basically anywhere with tile or hardwood. We then tore up and removed all of the carpet and pad and all of the staples. Whoever installed the pad went a little staple crazy. This is only about a third of what we removed.
After two days of work we were ready for the carpet installers. We weren't too sure how long the install process would take so we just hung out for the entire time. By then end of it I was going crazy in the little bit of clear space in our kitchen. I also didn't sleep well the night before so all I wanted was a nap...
All the hard work was worth it though!
We now have beautiful clean stain free carpet!! I can't even tell you how bad our carpet was before. The rug above was purchased to cover some of the stains. I was never sure when we had people over whether to apologize for the stains or just pretend that they weren't there. The only downside is I am not too fond of the vacuum lines or footprints that the new carpet shows.

We finally have our place 100% in order! It has taken 4 years and tons of time but everything has finally been gone through and organized. Just typing it sounds so much easier to accomplish than it actually was. Hopefully we will be able to keep it picked up at all times!

Everything looks so gorgeous! We just started the process of moving in and getting everything in order, and it seems like it's going to be a long long road. Looking forward to the day I can enjoy the finished product like you!

Looks gorgeous!! We ripped up some carpet last month and I totally understand how insane some people get with the damn staples - SO annoying!

I think it looks beautiful, and the vacuum stripes will go away over time, and they don't look bad anyways! :)

Looks beautiful! I think that the carpet will show less of those lines after it was been 'used' for awhile. Love that rug!

And 4 years, that's not bad at all, I never fully unpack because I know a move is on the horizon.
