The NEW new rug

Mother Nature isn't cooperating with sunlight so I did my best with the living room lights on.
Here is the new and final rug!

From the beginning of my search I kept gravitating toward these lattice rugs I was seeing but I kept second guessing myself and I was having trouble finding one that I liked in a color that would work for us AND a reasonable price.  Of course we end up with what I really wanted from the beginning!  I tend to do this so it isn't a surprise really. 

The other rug was super reasonably priced, and natural fiber and I wanted it to work but as you know it didn't...

As soon as we decided Knotty McRug wouldn't be staying with us I got right back on the computer and found our new rug.  100% wool, a soft green that goes really nicely in the room and a pretty reasonable price.  Good old Overstock delivered it for their flat shipping fee which is less than $3.00, can't beat that!

I'm not going to lie to you.  100% wool means it is a bit itchy.  I'm getting used to it and our little one could care less.  He was playing with legos bare legged in a diaper the day we received it so it's safe to say he doesn't mind.  It is a flat weave so there isn't much cushion to speak of and we're waiting for a rug pad to arrive.  I bought a regular old rug pad from Home Depot and found the chemical scent so offensive I had to return it.  I figured it didn't make any sense to lay our natural rug on that stinky thing!  We found a company that makes natural rug pads.  I'll let you know what we think when it arrives. 

We are really happy with the look.  It changes the room in a good way.  Warms it up and adds more interest.  With each day I find I'm liking it more. 

So, there it is.  I'll take a break from rugs for a while and get back to other obsessive, I mean passionate pursuits around the house.  Have a happy weekend!
