It took us a long time to take the plunge, the first year we were here I wasn't sure we needed a rug in the dining room. The second year we were here I couldn't find one. Okay . . . . we couldn't find one in our price range.
Then the stars aligned and we found this fabulous round, jute rug on Overstock.com It is perfect! It fits the shape of the room, and the size of the table. Our table is BIG, so a 6 foot round rug wouldn't do . . . we needed an 8 foot round rug! But again we had a 6 foot budget!
I've been following this rug for a while . . . like a bit of a rug stalker! I saw it go from $249, down to $234 at which point I bought it (put it in my online cart and everything) but because they didn't accept paypal, I put it off. Then I saw it drop to $174 and freaked out!!!! We said when we got back (we were visiting my parents at the time) we would buy it. When we got home it had dropped in price again, down to $157. There was no waiting . . . it was on like Donkey Kong!
So what do you think?
It's actually a lot softer than I thought it would be! I kind of expected it to be rough but it's not at all.
I love the texture it adds! To me, it give the room some life!
Barn Door, some new artwork and now a rug and it just seems so polished compared to how it looked a year ago!
Pop back later today and check out how much Max loves our new rug! That's right it's a two post kind of day!!!
