You may not know this, but today is the Boston Marathon. I don’t anticipate qualifying for this prestigious race
ever anytime soon, but who knows – slow may become the new fast. (To put some perspective on how fast these runners are, the winners of most marathons finish in just over two hours. My fastest half marathon time is just under two hours. So, they literally run twice as fast as I do. On a good day.) I figured I could pay tribute to the runners of today’s Boston Marathon by featuring what else? Runners! Rugs, of course.
First off, I scored a great runner for my hallway leading into my house from the garage. While I *love* the rug that was there before, it just doesn’t match now that I’ve painted the walls. Enter Overstock.com.
If it’s ringing a bell with you, it might be due to the fact that it is strikingly similar to what was in there before. Shall I refresh your memory?
Similar, yes? Turns out, while I bought this rug at the Ballard Designs Outlet, it’s actually a Safavieh rug, just like the one I bought on Overstock. I didn’t even realize it until I pulled it up to put the new one in.
I really love the new rug, and the colors are perfect for the new paint job. Runners in general are just a fun way to add some life into a space. Wouldn’t you agree?
This kitchen runner is fantastic.
I can’t even imagine having a storage space that would warrant a runner like this one does.
What a fun punch of color in this kitchen!
