Rumpus Room Make Over

Its taken a long time, but we have finally replaced the carpet in our rumpus room. The old carpet was in the house when we bought the place 10 years ago.

We were using carpet cut offs to cover the holes and as time went by it became older and more worse for wear. We also found that the carpet wasn't laid properly, this made it easy for removing.

Ben came round and helped us remove the carpet as Pat wasn't able to do it with his asthma. It was amazing the amount of dust underneath the carpet and underlay. I actually used the vacuum cleaner to remove all the crap off the cement. I rewarded Ben with a hot meal as Amy was at a Pink concert with her best friend.

The was furniture and such was all over the house overnight. Cats either loved the cement and kept running all over it, or if they walked on it...... they were like bottle brushes. So funny to watch them.

Today the guys came and laid out the carpet. There is enough left over to carpet our bedroom as well. Bonus ... as we bought an end of roll.

We went to 5 different carpet places and not until we saw this carpet did we at all look at a green carpet. Green is my most fav colour and when both of us saw the carpet, we knew this was the one for us. Other wise we were looking at browns and grays.

All laid and so far we have only put back the futon and the TV cabinet and the TV. Getting late in the day and we want to make sure the room isn't over cluttered.

Freezer isn't going back in the room as we don't want it on new carpet. So my computer desk is going out there tomorrow and the freezer will go when my desk is. Now the futon won't be jammed up against the back door. Thinking of putting the lounge book case where the freezer was.

My desk will go against this wall and free up the bathroom window to let more light in. We had a full length wall unit there against the window. This until will go for the time being where the book case is in the lounge room......... are you keeping up family members?? lol

So there you have it......... room looks so swish and just lovely.

Until next time....hoo roo

What a difference the new carpet makes, and an excellent time of year to get it done too. Keeps feet a little warmer.

Nicely done. :)
