I spent the last 2 days shampooing the carpet and not a very big area either! But it came clean..REALLY clean...I was amazed! then I continued on into the living room cleaning and rearranging and here's a few more pics....the French Provincial is not me but actually is is one of the most comfortable sofas I've ever had....who knew? It was my folks and it's a well made piece. I'd like to reupholster in a wild colorful fabric or maybe a plaid?
