The carpet we had on our living room / dining room floor was in rough shape. It was being held together by a man's secret weapon - duct tape. That carpet is no more. We received some new to us, used carpet. After lots of hard work scraping the old carpet off the floor and lots of trimming, the newer carpet has been laid and most of the furniture put back into place. For the carpet, and all the work that went into getting it into place, I am thankful.
