spent some time this afternoon in the bus after going to wally world and lowes this morning...and yeah we got between 8-12in of snow last night,luckily we already had 4in of standing water from 4 days of rain to soak up the snow
I bought some carpet and glue today(didn't really intend to it just happened)
I was comparing some samples from last weekend,when the guy said "you need some help?"
It nasty and snowy and I only need about 4 ft of this 15 foot wide carpet,but I don't want to put it on top on the snow and salt
(we had picked out a color that came in 15 ft width,figured I could get 4 feet and then slice it down the middle and have 2 pc to fit all 4 walls in the bedroom.)
The guy at lowes said "hell I can cut it 2ft wide and we can roll it short side, so it can be put in your truck and not on top with snow"
okay cool...he said since it's a new roll he would cut it alittle long for me so it will be square,
So I needed 22.50 in and he cut it at 32-ish.
He went to roll out next 2 ft and there was a dirty spot about 18in dia at the end, i pointed it out and he said "can you use whats left on that 2 feet?" I said if it's cheap
he smiled "well...I cant sell that"...so 7 feet or so later(i havent measured it yet) I had my 2 pc of carpet that equaled 4 feet!!!!!
some glue; a cheap trowel and I was on the road
first pc cutting to fit...exactly what in the hell is best way to cut this crap?new razor, so so pulls yarn.Kitchen shears(dont tell Lisa)..my hand is sore and sooo,sooo....a combo of both seems to work best.
first pc up
pic of look im going for
check out wrapped price
since it was "damaged" it got it cheap $6 a foot normally about $12 a foot
.........24 dollars almost a steal,but I paid for it
Thumbnails...this is new to me...but bandwidth friendly..if I did it right
