Flooring Project(s) Part 3

Have you gotten the idea yet that there are a million big things happening in this household at once?

If you haven't, let me fill you in on a little secret:  There are a million big things happening in this household seemingly all at once!  Yes, we're crazy.  Is it fun?!  Sure is!  I haven't had this much energy in months, and am enjoying every last second...

Now, to the purpose of this post.  If you noticed, this is titled Flooring Project(s) Part 3.  Yes 3.  (Part 1 Here and Part 2 Here) On Monday, we get the bedroom carpet replaced, and new stuff installed!  We went with a shade of loop patterned (in a square design) of Stainmaster carpet in a color called "brown sugar."  It really picks up on some of the undertones of the wood floor we just had installed and will be a great dirt hider.  :)  After all, the backyard still is ripped to pieces, and the dogs (ok, and the humans) of the house bring dirt and dust in every time we walk back in.  Plus, with a baby?  Yep.  Time to prepare to hide that dirt!

Here are some sample shots from the Stainmaster website so you can get an idea of what we're working with.   This color is called "chocolate" from their website, but it's nearly the same:

 Bedroom scene, because we're only carpeting the bedrooms + closets.  Oh, and the hall closet.

Better carpet shot though here in a living room- doesn't it look good with the white baseboards?!

Love, love, love it!

Real photos to come later- well, Monday even!

Remember, this was our flooring:

But here are some better pictures with it installed, and the baseboards up... Yes, these are just teasers!  There will undoubtedly be a Flooring Project(s) Part 4 & 5.

Oh, and you'll *love* to hear about the bleach story on the subfloor in the dogs room.  Just awesome I tell you!

Hope you're having a great Saturday... I'm sitting here with my chubbies (my pet name for those super swollen pregnancy ankles I've already acquired) with my Game Ready eatin' some FroYo.
