The media wall may not be in place yet, but that still doesn’t stop us from humming Bowie’s tune lately. Those that know me well know that I’m not the most patient person on the planet. If I get an idea in my head, it’s full steam ahead until completion. So when we scooped up the new-to-us coffee table from Craigs (and for a steal), it only took a handful of weeks before our living room began evolving – one piece at a time. First the table, then this:
That is, the rug. Jack’s couch licking habit didn’t stop at our favorite perch – nope. He also managed to lick our last rug raw, but the thread bare spot was easily concealed by our honkin’ table. The table we’re no longer using. Our pup has come a long way since then, and fingers crossed he keeps up the good behavior. Lucky for him, his seal of approval wasn’t the only one, and we’re thrilled with the perfectly neutral shag rug. Of course we’re not the types to go busting out the plastic all willy nilly for a new purchase, so after researching our favorite web hot spots, we’re happy to report that Overstock won our business again. Again, for a steal.
The best part is that we finally snagged a rug that fit our space. From our dark days to the most recent Target find, we’d been making do with a 5′x7′. That’s fine, but it wasn’t ideal for our half living, half dining, very oddly shaped (and itty bitty) sitting room. The new kid is a shapely 7′ square, which allows the front legs of our furniture to rest easily on the shag (something we weren’t able to do before).
No room shots just yet, but we’ll keep you updated as we keep reaching for the finish line (ha, as if we’re ever really finished!). And out of curiosity, what are your thoughts on the shag? Feeling groovy, or not so much? Are you more traditional, contemporary, or maybe you’re all about exposing the hardwoods?
