I’m like a rug-ordering fool people. I don’t know if it’s this country water or if it’s just because this is the first time I’ve lived in a place that wasn’t 80% carpeted…but I love me some rugs. I’m like that Hunger Games chick on a mission to put er down.
One of the areas in our house that needs a little cush underfoot is the room that leads from the back patio to the basement. I call it the mud room but really it got that moniker only because it’s constantly dirty. Here it is when we moved in…
I haven’t done much in there except put a little Pier 1 coat hook thing on the wall….and put in a table and chairs.
The area really couldn’t be more plain.
I knew that a six foot round rug under the table was the only choice…so I decided to put it on my list that if I found one under $100 (including shipping) then it would be worth bringing up to Jeremy. Enter RugsUSA.
For the fourth of July, RugsUSA decided to do a big sale. I love a sale…the bigger the better. And this one was 75% off their prices on certain rugs….including a round jute one and a wool animal print runner. If rug shopping was an Olympic sport…well, call me Misty May Phelps Bolt. That’s not hyphenated by the way. And yes, you can imagine me dressed with a bikini (body included), gold shoes, and a few medals around my neck.
So after I talked it over with Jer, I scored two 6 foot round jute rugs…one for the foyer and one for the basement mudroom. Each was originally $238…but after the discount they were each $59.50 plus free shipping. And the zebra runner was originally $334 down to $83.50 again with free shipping. That means – three rugs….one low price of $202.50. Not to shabby…nubby and soft…but not shabby 🙂
I love the jute rug. It’s perfect for the space. The added of the texture helps me tremendously deal with the crazy ugly orange faux-wood tile floor (which we hope to cover way down the line with some real wood looking laminate planks).
The color is pretty perfect too…and I even love the exposed little stitching.
And the space is really much more defined now. You can still swing the door open the entire way and walk around the table to the basement bathroom…not a stitch of the rug is in the way…so I can just imagine it not getting quite as dirty as a square or 5×8 version would.
So anyone else on a rug kick lately? Anyone cheering for jute rugs? I give them a gold medal every time. Or maybe it was a tie – one gold medal for jute…one for RugsUSA…one for the Olympics. This is obviously communist judging….they share everything 🙂
p.s. RugsUSA did not endorse, sponsor or perk me for this post – they don’t know me. At least I think they don’t. But if they want to get to know me…I love rugs. nuff said 🙂
