Ragged Carpet Edges

When I installed the flooring in the Guac, the carpet I used was an area rug 8` x 5`. I cut that carpet right in half and each half was a perfect fit. But that left one edge ragged and unbound.

I looked at all the home centers for carpet edge binding, and only found some at Lowe`s. But that stuff was expensive and they didn`t have black. I found some online, but really wanted it in my hands before buying it.

I wandered around Lowe`s for a while and found a rubber border for areas where tile and carpet meet. Perfect!

I`ll leave it there for a while to test it`s durability. If it works out, I`ll glue it to the carpet and make it permanent.
