Rugs are crazy expensive. At least, interesting ones are.
Maybe one day I'll have a nice rug.
But for now, I have a DIY one that is just right for us.
supplies: home decor fabric, canvas dropcloth, spray adhesive, rug gripper, sewing machine
My 4x6 rug cost around $50 and I got to pick out the exact fabric I wanted.
I used this DIY tutorial. Worked out really well!
Do you guys see how matchy-matchy and big-box store our living room is?
It's okay for now but if I could do it again, I would do it differently. For instance, I definitely don't love that coffee table. And I would never have purchased that recliner if my husband didn't really want one.
We had visitors coming really soon after we moved and I felt pressure to purchase everything right away. Plus, we don't have a truck and I would have to find a way transport anything from a thrift store. :( So I bought from second-hand furniture stores that would deliver and ordered things online.
It works, but I'm definitely dreaming of the day when we have a house and I can do it right.
