when we first moved into this house it still had shag in 2 rooms. there was a brown, black, white and tan mix carpet in the living room and a light blue, indigo, aqua and white mix carpet in my parent's room. the blue mix carpet was actually kinda pretty. I still remember the fun I had the night before the new carpet came in. I went "sledding" (I think that's the term I want to use) on the beautiful wood floors. I don't miss that carpet for the world. sorry.
actually, I'd rather have shag in my room than what WAS in my room when we moved in. golden yellow indoor/outdoor carpeting. *gag* oh yeah, and matching green carpet in the kitchen.
