Finally New Carpet Upstairs

So I have been on this baby kick for quite awhile, and it's not because I'm baby obsessed. It's mainly because I've been an overall slacker and then I find myself behind on my baby post so then that is all I post! I should be posting once a week on baby but clearly I'm barely posting anything at all.

Time to change it up a bit. We were long overdue for carpet upstairs in our home. The rooms had different shades of carpet and we had no earthly idea why. What's more is that when the first homeowners lived here, we figure they must have selected the hodge podge carpet on purpose. Now you remember how the downstairs carpet looked right? If not you can refresh your memory here in the carpets, carpets, carpets post.  Well the upstairs wasn't as bad but it was not good at all. Take a look at these closeup images of the stairs. The spots are a bit exaggerated because there is stain removal spray on them but seriously you should NEVER have that many stains in 4 year old carpet!
 Here is a view of the upstairs carpet with stain remover spray on it.
To give you a bit more detail on the carpet upstairs, the stairs and hallway were gray, the master had brown carpet and the other 3 bedrooms had a blueish shade happening. MADE NO SENSE! No matter how much we tried we could not make this carpet look good. We literally have had to replace the floors in the entire house and of course the downstairs took precedence. So when we were finally able to get to the upstairs it was a long time coming. Take a look at the before staircase:
And here is the staircase sans carpet:
And here is the final product! It's a low pile berber known as Spanish Bay. We still have some painting to do as you can tell based on the brown wood on the let and right.
And here is a photo of the new carpet upstairs, stain free!
It's wonderful!!! And it has that new carpet smell! I can finally walk around without my slippers on. Oh happy day.

Wow! That’s quite an improvement! The clean carpet is definitely better than the stained one. Remember to immediately clean the stained area with a cleaning detergent and water to prevent having permanent stains on the new carpet.

Your previous carpet really looked messy and I’m sure you didn’t want to hear any more negative remarks from others about it, so you replaced it with a new one. Well, that’s the best thing to do, darling. Your house looks clean once again especially the staircase. It’s really wonderful to look at and I know that you enjoy stepping on those comfy steps. :')

An all-carpeted house! It's a good thing that you do have the magic touch to transform that stained carpet into a new one. Actually, barely looking at it makes me think that it was brand new. Great work!

OH My gosh!, what an improvement for sure but I'm very sad at the same time.. Those stair floors look perfect for a bit of sanding and staining or a nice coat of dark paint.. Lol
