Unrolling our new rug...
A few weeks ago I shared my journey to finding a cheap, beautiful area rug for our new apartment. Around that time, the jute rug we chose showed up at my doorstep. Of course it arrived while I was home alone and I had to drag that SUPER heavy sucker in by myself! I easily could have waited until Daniel got home to unroll it but, yeah right. I was so ready to see it in our new space! I have to admit, when I looked at the roll in our living room, I was afraid we went a little too large - we ordered a 9' x 12', by the way. However, low and behold, I tucked it under the couch about a foot deep and it looked great! In my opinion, anyway;). It's sturdy, comfortable, bright and exactly what I wanted. I can't believe we got it for under $300! I think it's the perfect base for layering rugs, too. We were interested in buying a vintage rug but the sizing of those guys are kinda weird. We'll see if we find the perfect one to layer on top sometime down the road but even if we don't, I'm obsessed with how this one turned out!
Keep in mind we are not finished decorating & rearranging this space! In fact, Several things have changed since I took these photos about a month ago. Wow, I can't believe it's been a month!
Voila! Here is the rug Unrolled & not quite laying flat...woops.
