Yesterday I promised a shot of the newly tiled bathroom floors. Here it is:
I’ve been thinking about how the dining room is going to look with the wallpapering and painting finished.
Then I started thinking about what to do for a rug.
The floor is vintage red oak so I wasn’t it covered.
And the room is a weird size — 11′-8″ by 12′-4″. The wall on one side ends in the middle of the piano on the other side.
After getting a gazillion emails about the big cyber sale on RugsUSA I tried to take a look. I’ve tried before to find a rug online but the color, quality, and sheer volume of choices had me stymied. I narrowed the choices down to only those blue rugs with 80% off.
Since this is the main thoroughfare of the downstairs I didn’t want anything too light that would have a dirty corner from back and forth traffic.
The two above were my final choices. So with 80% off and free shipping I bought the bottom one for $170. I can only hope that the mixture of colors — blues, yellows, greys, and greens — will not look too wild.
Delivery is set for this Friday but I won’t roll it out until the wallpapering is finished.
What was your crazy purchase? Did it work out?
