My dilemma on deciding rug styles and color
Tonight I did a little shopping to find some new area rugs, I need one for the living room, under the dining table and one in the sunroom. I didn't have a whole lot to choose from in my price range, but I never give up! I was in Target the other day looking at their rugs and they had $389.00 rugs on sale for $89.00!! Now that's what I'm talking about! Unfortunately, the color was wrong but let me tell you I was trying to figure out if there was any place I could use these rugs, but I have no blue in my house. I found an 8x10 rug at Lowe's that was $189.00 on sale for $49.50 but....they were sold out. I looked at their indoor/outdoor rugs, the sizes and prices were right but they were in the brown family and I am through with brown. I did find one that I loved but the green was all wrong, I need something with an olive green and this one was more of a forest green. I have a vision and I usually don't stop hunting until I make that vision come true! I don't want to spend a lot of money on these rugs unless I love them enough to keep them and they are neutral enough to go with any changes I make down the road. I did find a few that may work but I have to measure tomorrow and decide which one of the three will work best. When I purchase these rugs they will be the most expensive part of this whole redo. I have sold more things on eBay this month so I still have $1,100.00 in my redo fund and I still have to get new curtains also when I can get back to Ikea!
