This one time, not at band camp, but online shopping, I found this rug from Urban Outfitters that I crushed on. It brought out my inner hipster. And I was mad hot that they didn’t have it in my living room’s size. It was like shopping for a prom dress, and only finding it 2 sizes smaller. Luckily, I thought of a solution that would work with rugs, and not so much prom dresses. Buying two, and putting them up next to each other.
And it seemed to work.
But there were 2 things I didn’t account for.
Don’t let their sweet faces fool you. Indy and Buster LOVE to chase one another, and wrestle, and make trouble all over the living room. It usually leaves the rugs looking like this:
I was CONSTANTLY straightening it out. Daily. Twice daily. Or I would just give up, because I knew they would ruffle it up again.
It was perpetually jostled.
I was perpetually provoked.
I wasn’t planning on buying a new rug until our kitchen reno was done, since EVERYTHING is changing. But my mad prego hormones kicked in and I lost it. If I didn’t have a new rug, my life was over. It was exactly that dramatic.
So I went to HomeGoods looking for a rug on the cheap.
And I found this little gem. Look hard at that price. It was only $69.
It could have looked like a giant turd, and for $69, I still would have bought it. Luckily, it did not look like a turd.
For that price, you really can’t say no. Even if I change my mind with the design down the road, it was only $69.00
It’s a jute rug with a Moroccan lattice pattern. It’s slightly smaller than what the two rugs put together were. But it is SO nice to have it lay flat. All the time. No matter how much the dogs play on it.
Everything is a little mismatched, but that has something to do with missing walls, different paint colors, old art, and so on. But like I said, we’re reworking it all. Haters gonna hate. Kenz ‘gonna redecorate. The living room will look great. Word. #endrap
You want to be so mad at those naughty dogs… but, then Buster pulls his “baby seal” face, and it’s over. He unfairly steals yours heart.
In other flooring news:

And that means the days of this will be long gone.
All the same color, in the same direction. It will be a beautiful thing. Awwww. Happiness.
