I've Been Floored

There is a secret I've been keeping from you, and it lived in my living room. My old, ratty, could never get clean no matter what I did to it rug.

I've had it since college and it's been spilled on, partied on, animals sleeping on, ect. I've been embarrassed to have people over and I'm embarrassed to show it to you now.

I've been wanting to get a new one for a while now but haven't found one I liked in the price range I wanted to stay in. 

But this past weekend I finally lucked out! I went to a Homegoods store here in town and hit the rug jackpot!

Yay! New clean rug! It has the colors I was looking for (greenish to match the curtains, chocolate brown of the couch, tan, and even some blue in the mix.) But the price is what really sold me- It was originally $300 and it was on clearance for $99! Score!

I love it, and Con-Man loves it too- when I rolled it out he said "Oooohh!" then proceeded to run and roll all over it.

See him checking it out? And notice my still unfinished coffee table. I'll get to it one of these days but for now I'm just enjoying my new rug!

Hope everyone is enjoying the New Year!

It looks great! I love the colour ways! My rule on rugs is that if it doesn't fit in the washing machine then I cannot have it! I have four dogs in the house and if they have an 'accident' it is always on a rug!! I learnt the hard way on a very expensive and largely ruined rug!!

It looks great in there and goes with everything.

Looks great! I have a "rug problem" in my sitting room...pretty much everything else has changed in that room and there sits my sad green rug. Guess I should head over to Home Goods :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great week, Laurel@chippingwithcharm
