Ok I'll actually start with a smaller one.
One brass and glass coffee table courtesy of Craigslist. I know most people reading this will probably hate it....a year ago I would have hated it too. But after going on an interior design blog binge for the last six months, I'm in love with all things brass. This 80s goodness is back!
This was also a great find because it was only $40 - the rest of the brass and glass tables on Craigs were in the hundreds. It was listed for $50 but when I went to pick it up, the lady said she was pretty sure she listed it for $40....not going to argue with that!
Here it is with the rest of the living room...or half of the living room at least. The camera angle makes it look much bigger than it is....
On to the big purchases! 9' x 12' big to be exact.
This is the softest rug of all time. EVER. It's like we have a big blanket on the floor.
I'm sure it will be about as easy to clean as a big blanket on the floor too but oh well, I love it. This rug and the next one were both purchased from Overstock.com which I had never ordered from before. I recommend it! Fast delivery and low prices.
First, I saw a similar rug at Crate & Barrel....for $1300...eek!
Then I posted a couple of weeks ago that I was going to buy this rug from Home Decorators Collection...for $849...better...but they also charged $187 in shipping! Total of $1036....ugh.
But then! I found this one on Overstock for $576! Aaaaand? Only $2.95 for shipping.
It's so nice to finally have a cozy rug in the living room! Now onto the dining room....
I don't think I like it :(
It's a fun idea....but maybe for a teenagers bedroom? I'm going to leave it there for a couple days to be sure but I think this one's a no.
It's sold out on Overstock now but it was $288 with zero dollars for shipping (Overstock is awesome!!)
What do you think? Horrible? Beautiful? Cheesy?
