Birch Lodge Motel gets New Carpet!

Birch Lodge Motel, Trout Lake, MI
Late last fall, we were carpet shopping.  Actually, I was looking at carpet samples often during the summer, but none seemed right.  We hoped to put in something that was easy to care for, but we also wanted to keep a retro feel.

 Finally we found one we thought would work.  It is made of recycled fibers and is gold and beige with a fleck in it which reminds me of our star burst lamps.

The carpet was ordered the end of October, and although I was hoping for something sooner,  the installation was set for Thanksgiving week!
By then we had the pipes blown and the motel winterized.  The cabin, where I stayed had the heat tapes on.  

 In order to make sure the installation only took one day, we moved the furniture  and had the carpet removed by our handyman.

  We noticed under the baseboards the original teal and orange of the room walls....I don't think we will repaint those colors!

The installation crew came and did a great, quick job of it.  They were in and out in only a few hours.   I think it looks great.

 With a storm coming in, we decided to winterize the cabin and leave the furniture set up until April.

 Which got me home just the day before Thanksgiving!
