The ugly blue high-low textured carpet, that at one point, some 30 years ago, was a good quality carpet, has left the building. :)
(it's actually sitting on the front walk right now, waiting to be carried to the garage until it goes to the dump. Wait, I hear the guys moving it now. YAY!).
The hardwood floor underneath the carpet is in great shape, oak parquet in need of some wax, but that's all. Those little strips of nails to hold carpet are a pain to remove.
The TV and all the media equipment fit neatly into the closet, and can be closed up when we're not using them. It's a true built-in entertainment center.
I am a happy girl.
I see more carpet ripping out in my near future.
