looks good ! This is a high priority on my mod list. Even after only 2 days of owning it the floor boards have lots of little specs on them and it is driving me nuts.

What did you use for a template (if you did)? It looks really nice.

I bought the cheapest carpet at lowes (4'1" of it) and just layed it down in the back. I think the E's width is just under 4 feet. Took my utility knife and cut around all of the edges. The carpet cuts with ease if you have a sharp blade so it was not to difficult to get a good line. The carpeet was $22.00 and I have enough left to do another round if this one gets dirty or moldy etc.

Did you do the front, too?

No not yet, I guess I could, you could do a whole piece for the front. Might have to make a template for that one ;)

That looks great! Does it slide around at all or did you stick it down somehow?

How about the edges, will they eventually fray? It looks like you may have some sort of treatment for that....
