I did it - pulled the trigger on a rug I'd been looking at for weeks. It's like a plushy twister game, and it'll protect my ivory wall to wall carpet! I know I'm a doofus for putting that in there, you don't have to tell me twice.



Eclectic rainbow (with a masculine or feminine twinge when we find out in 7 weeks) nursery is on its way! Now i'm off to go start sanding my bentwood rocking chair.. it's currently completely dismantled, cleaned, and sitting broken down in my driveway ready to be sanded, primed, painted and sealed. 2nd trimester energy, don't fail me now!!

Looks like you're in the 'nesting' mode. I love the rug by the way, you can do so much with it color-wise! I just made my first purchase of maternity clothes (thanks to that Zullily someone suggested). It makes it all so real doesn't it?

I love white carpet! When it's clean everything looks so clean! The only bad thing is when it gets dirty. lol Invest in a spot cleaner!

Thanks ladies! i'm super pumped. I'll take pictures of the final product... I think after this is done I'm going to submit pictures of my house (finished at last, after this nursery!) to some blogs/magazines. I really think everything turned out so well - very proud of our work here! But I won't get too ahead of myself because my chair is currently dismantled, sanding-dust covered and stored in my car trunk for lack of garage space.

Overstock! I love buying rugs there. I have purchased 2 sisal rugs, my living room area rug, and my kitchen rug there. They have items that I've seen other places (when I shop, I shop AROUND) for twice as much, since a lot of the time they don't necessarily tout the brand. I don't know why but this cuts the cost considerably. I've also purchased really long drapery poles (normally cost a fortune, didn't there!) and other window hardware items. Knowing how much these cost through a design center I'm very happy with the cost/quality of the stuff I've purchased. I sound like an Overstock ad but I truly do like them.

Love the rug, and it's awesome that you got it for a bargain. I'm the same way when it comes to shopping.

Wow, I don't know how you picked just one! There are so many rugs that I want on Overstock now. I'm even thinking of replacing my living room rug. I sent the link over to my sister as well, she's buying her first house. Thanks for the tip!

Plus many are 10% off today in addition to any other coupons you may find out there. I think if you sign up for the mailing list you can get $20 off $150 home decor until the 12th (so said my coupon anyway).

This rug has chain reactioned my nursery purchasing - just ordered a print for the walls! BONUS I had an unknown paypal balance so it was like finding money in a jacket! "free" poster!
