We finally got most of our new carpet in today... and I wanted to post a "before" and "after" picture to give you an idea of what it looks like. You can see Savannah put herself in the middle of everything... until she wore herself out and fell asleep.
We were hoping to wait on having new carpet installed, but soon realized that 10 years of wear on the cheap carpet wasn't going to cut it (especially since the previous owners had a large dog).
They had to order a special cut of carpeting for the spare bedroom and it won't be installed until next week.
I can't begin to describe the difference between the old and new carpet... the new padding alone was thicker than the old teal carpet (apparently the old padding was what Lowe's gives away for free).
I'll post more pictures later.
