Okay, I have, as you know if you read this, been back and forth and back and… about the living room rug. I finally threw in the towel, I was going to make it, right? I had the first strip made, needed to make the 2nd so I could try the joining idea, and…. and I was doing all that.
Except that the colors are NOT what I want for my home. They are pastels, most of them. I have black and white and some peacock or teal, but not anywhere near enough for a 5 x 8 foot rug. I started taking the strip I’d done apart, to see if I could figure a way to make something much closer to what I really want?
And, unless I start dying cloth strips, the answer was No! So DH and I talked about it, again. And I started looking, again. I had absolutely NO faith I could find a wool or cotton rug, flat woven, in colors I wanted, within a price I’d pay. Absolutely not a chance. How long have I been looking? Months!
And then I found these:
They are cotton, flatwoven and not insanely expensive. I’m buying two of them for the living room!
