The Carpet is Off of the Stairs
Over 25 years ago, my first husband and I painted the living room pink and I picked out, what I thought, was a burgundy carpet. It turned out to be orange against the pink. I even argued with the installer that it was the wrong color except I still had the sample and that was the color I had chosen. I have hated that carpet ever since. It is dark enough to show every thread or piece of dust. About four years ago we took out the carpeting in the living room but kept that on the stairs until we knew what to do with the stairs. Yesterday Hubby ripped out the carpeting on the stairs. There is still some in the upstairs hall. We still are not sure what to do with the stairs but we think we will leave them as hardwood showing.
