Midday Muse: Shag Carpet-Printed Linoleum

Warning: do not try this at home. Shag carpet-printed linoleum. Four words you never want to hear together. In the case of Adam, who is fixing his 19th-century house, not only are those words familiar, but they are ever present with each glance at the floor of his bedroom and closet. In some slip of sanity, a company actually produced shag carpet-printed linoleum and someone willingly nailed it to their floor above what were likely once-beautiful hardwood floors. To say that I am wowed by this would be a drastic understatement; I think I am in shock. I cannot fathom how this has happened. Did the previous owner hate to vacuum? I'd love to know if any of you out there actually like this linoleum. And, what about you? Are there any decorating sins left from previous residents of your home?
