Go, go, go! That is an elegant idea. Make sure to choose the right color combination that will compliment your walls and furniture.

Thanks rusty, this helps me too in my decision. I think I'll round my edges, then rabbet the underside to cover the edges of the carpet. Po) That should hold it tight and stop any fraying.

For the record, I love the look of carpet tucked to tile or wood, it just isn't the right way to do it.
