I stumbled upon a rug deal like no other about a week ago and had to share. I had finished up the condo kitchen and bathroom makeover, which, coincidentally was located near IKEA and the Ballard/Frontgate/Grandin Road Outlet. So, of course, I had to stop by and check it out, right? I was in the neighborhood, after all.
Well, wouldn’t you know – I found a stack of rugs that were on sale for $159 each, regardless of size, and saw this beauty:
Then, in chatting with another woman (who was looking at the same rug in a slightly smaller size), I was informed that the rugs were all $99. Say WHAT? That made an attractive rug even more attractive.
So, I bought it. And it rung up at $95. Aw, yeah!
I bought it with the intent of putting it in our dining room, since the colors are perfect. Got it home and then realized it was as big as the one in our family room. (Perhaps I should have taken the woman’s offer to trade for the slightly smaller rug).
First, I tried it in the family room –
Nice, but I liked the original rug better:
So, I moved on to the dining room. As a refresher, here is what I had in the dining room before:
And here it is with the new rug. What do you think? Is it too big? I like the colors with the drapes in here, and I definitely like the price. 🙂 And, I can exchange it with the family room rug if I get bored.
I know you’re wondering what the family room rug would look like in the dining room – I thought about that too. Just didn’t feel like doing the heavy lifting (right now). But, the furniture sliders are still under the dining room table in case I get the urge to change things up.
Have you scored any serious deals lately?
