My Rug Story

I love watching decorating shows. I'm always looking for ideas on how to arrange things and make things more comfortable in my home. My favorite shows are the ones that redecorate with stuff people already have - no-cost decorating! Then there's one where the budget is $500 and one where the budget is $1000...for one room. With $500, I could do several rooms and with $1000, I'm fairly certain I could decorate my entire house!

One way a lot of these decorators stretch their dollars is to go second-hand. I see them quite often put down an area rug that they've found at garage sales or thrift stores for not a lot of money. I always wonder why can't I ever find those rugs??
Until last week......

Under a clothing rack in Goodwill, I found a gem. A large-sized area rug in wonderful condition. I unrolled and rerolled (like a scroll) to find out where the damage was and to my surprise found none. The best part?? The rug was a grand total of $7.50!!!!! That's right...I said Seven dollars and Fifty cents!!!!!!!
Want to see it??????
My little dog, Jack decided to get in on the picture too!
Thanks for sharing my excitement today!!
