The Ugly (not so much ugly as the rug just doesn't work here, and yes, I know my drapes are too short):
The Good (or at least slightly better):
I've been looking for a decent rug for the Addition for ages now. The old rooster rug just wasn't cutting it anymore. The bare floor is cold during the winter months, and I wanted something a little larger to keep the girls warm.
I was in Wal-Mart last week, and the heavens parted. Lo and behold, this lone rug sat on a rack by itself, marked down to $44.50. I made Natalie get out of the cart and walk so I could get it to the register before someone else snatched up what was clearly meant for me.
There's a lot of work left to be done on this room, which is currently used as a miniature Toys 'R Us by Natalie and Michaela Byrd, but we're getting there.
I knew the rug couldn't stay toy and dog-free forever....
Linking up to Kimba's DIY party over at A Soft Place to Land. It just goes to show how much something simple like a cheap Wal-Mart rug can warm up a room!
Make plans now to link up your current Decorating Dilemmas (anything around the house or yard that you'd like some feedback on) or best Solutions!
I had a slew of emails from readers who forgot or didn't have a chance to link up last time. Please mark your bloggy calendars now or sign up to Follow here to receive reminders (not a plug for Following, just asking you to be aware that I can't email every single person on the internet with a reminder...wink)
You asked, and I conceded. In March, I'll give you a chance to showcase the progress you've made with any of the Dilemmas you've linked up in the past few months. I count pretty much anything as progress...even if it's just picking and choosing which of the suggestions you liked most and which you plan on implementing with your Dilemma. It will be fun to see the changes you've made...I know I have my work cut out for me before March gets here!
Hope to see you here!
