Attic Reno Continued

Dave has been working tirelessly on the second floor reno. It's all coming together now. He finished the stairs, hanging the doors and trim and the electrician came and now we finally have electricity up there.

Let's go back a ways back here... when we moved in it looked like this:
Beautiful huh?
During the reno:

And now:
The stairs looked like this: (this photo is looking UP the stairs. Why the treads are not on the steps are beyond me)
And now: (painting wall after moving furniture!)
Let me remind you that Dave did 95% of this work by himself. He's amazing.
Some participation by our little helper:
He kept saying "oooh" and "wow" at the pile of cabinet screws and nuts. He quickly figured out how to put them together. He's clearly Dave's child.
And now it's time to pick out carpet. We went to the carpet store last night and thought we'd grab a few samples and be out quickly. The selection was overwhelming and ended up coming home with 5 samples and don't know what to choose. We can't do burber because of the dog's claws and she'll pull the loops on it. Picking the color is hard because the walls are gray and trim is white.
I loved the one below in the store, but not sure about it now. It is in style, but probably won't be in 5 years, and not sure how easy it will be to decorate around it.
I like the idea of a design on the carpet since we won't be able to have an area rug. We'll probably end up with some boring cream colored rug in the end... to be continued.
