Snow Angels Inside

Almost as if I’m going through a mid-life crisis, I’m turning my back on those traditional  patterned big rugs I’ve had scattered under my furniture and tables

and I’m going for something more serene. The bold, colorful patterns are a great way to hide juice, wine, and graham cracker spills, which was why I was originally attracted to them.Yet, the rugs are almost threadbare, and I was at  a crossroads. Now, I’m suddenly ready for a clean, simpler look. In fact, I’m ready to trade in my traditional colonial for a Brady-Bunch style house. (Almost like a mid-life crisis). So, instead of the house, I’m starting with the rugs.

Shags, it turns out, also hide the spills. And shags are everywhere.

The one I found is extremely soft, and can  even take a hit of bleach without hurting the fibers. I was lucky enough to find a very large remnant at a carpet warehouse. I had everything cut and bound to these dimensions (in feet).

  • 6.6 x 6.6
  • 5 x 8
  • 4×6
  • 10.6 by 10

The cost, because I bought a remnant, was cheap, way below $500 for all of these rugs. And they are plush and soft!

The best part is, now we find Elf happily making snow angels inside. Here’s my best shot.
