The blue slubby fabric for the stairs was returned by the seamstress a while back. She made it more finished than I had in mind, which is both a good and bad thing. Good in that it may just wear longer. Bad, in that she put a seam down the middle of the piece and DH is concerned it will wear more quickly or be bulky there. We unrolled it down the stairs and I will say it looks stunning. The stairs need to be painted, first. I also need to decide if I’m doing stair rods or how I’m attaching the fabric, if not with stair rods.
The living room rug which was in front of the couch has been replaced with one of the new rugs. The replaced rug was made by the Mennonite Committee from old blue jeans. I don’t have a designated place to put it. Now I have too many rugs, or too many rugs I’m not sure where they’ll go — of course!
- The 2 newest rugs (which match the living room rugs). These are runners.
- the blue jean rug. This is a runner.
- a rug made from old saris I bought used two years ago. This is a very long runner.
- the dining room rug. This is NOT a runner!
I started this post before we’d found the new living room rugs, and solved that part of the problem. Obviously, I like runners!
The other issue, that of the stair rug? It doesn’t have a solution yet either.
So I solved the living room rug dilemma, but created another or added to it. That’s the way it goes around here!
