Vinyl flooring is not that expensive.  For $200, could this flooring be replaced and gain the seller $2,000 more in price?

Peel-n-stick fail.

Incorrect Display of the American Flag

June 14th, 2015 · No Comments

Wrong.

48 stars, 10 stripes, and displayed incorrectly.  Triple fail.

Displayed correctly inside, but citizens will see it backward when outside.  Even James Bond knows that.

As we politely step back to leave the kitchen, we see more damage.  I have a sinking feeling the rest of the kitchen will look the same.

Carpet with multiple colors helps disguise dirt and stains.

It adds pizzazz to otherwise boring carpet.
