True to my word, I am posting some new material today (hooray!). I have been looking for a new rug for our living room for over a year, but I had a couple of criteria. 1. It had to be approximately 9x12 2. It had to be less than $500 and 3. I had to love it. This is why it took a whole year to find this rug!
I liked the rug we had in our living room, but I didn't like the tan on tan on tan color scheme of the room, and I didn't like the large orange stain that we had to keep covered by a piece of furniture.
Here's my before photo. It's pretty old (before our yellow love seat), and pretty messy, but it's the only one I could find of our old rug.
On a side note, I bought some new flowers at Hobby Lobby to create more of a spring arrangement for the mantel, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to take them back. The modernist in me is rebelling. I'm going to have to find something more funky.
