I am just a leeeetle bit excited today!! This morning my husband showed me a tall rounded package leaning up against the sidelight on our door (basically covering it). Not only was I glad that the UPS man arrived and left without getting stuck in our driveway (we have a good sheet of ice and snow on our sloping driveway!) but also because that package was our NEW RUG!!!!!
(Just indulge me for a moment. I have never bought a big huge new rug before!!)
I got it in one of the Black Friday sales that was happening around the internet. It is from RugsUSA and though I am a little leery of them due to some sketchy pricing practices (Sheena alerted me to this and yep, it is true!! I checked and rechecked for a few months on the prices for this very rug just to see!) it was the best deal I could find on a rug like this. I looked in brick and mortar stores and around the web and it was definitely a good deal. Most of the rugs were way out of our budget or too small for the space I want to put it in. It came with no problems at all and I reeeaaaallly really like it so we’ll see how it holds up to three little kids!!
This little guy was only too happy to try the rug out…
It is BIG. At least to me…it is 8’X10.5’ I think. The natural jute is gorgeous and it is actually soft! I was pretty worried that it would be rough and scratchy but it isn’t at all. I anticipate some shedding both on clothes and on the floor but to me it is no biggie. I’m excited to add this to our living room!
(Speaking of which, I’d better get cleaning in there so I can put the rug down!) : )
