The Dining Room with a New Rug

Who doesn't like free? Last year when I attended a blog conference in Atlanta, those bloggers that participated in doing a video about why we needed new floor covering were gifted a rug of our selection.  When I say "rug" what I really mean is a piece of bound carpet.  Shaw Floors offered several designs and colors for us to select from.  The piece I selected was gray/white.  The plan was to lay this 6X9 rug on top of our dreadful bedroom carpet that is in desperate need of being replaced.

The only problem that I hadn't taken into account is that the current carpet is brown and trust me when I say that the new rug was not going to work there.  So I rolled up the new rug and it laid, in the foyer the entire month of December.  Yes all the way through Christmas!  Guests just stepped over it.   

I pondered what I should do with the rug.....and pondered some more.  Then when I took the Christmas decor down it hit me.  Why not give it a try in the dining room?  So I recruited John to help with the transition, never underestimate the "willingness to help" of a 14 year old boy!  After all he did do all the heavy lifting!

Ever since moving in 8 years ago I've wanted a rug in the dining room and while I hadn't planned on this particular rug it absolutely works!  For now!  So a very big thanks to Shaw Floors for my new rug!
