Fall into the Holidays ~ Kitchen


Welcome to FALL INTO THE HOLIDAYS, a four week series where we'll be sharing
 ideas for sprucing up our homes before the holiday season kicks into high gear.
 Our lovely hostess Lisa @ Shine Your Light came up with the idea by asking friends what
 they'd most like to see on blogs - hands down, simple, do-able ideas were the favorite!
So that's our goal - and this week we're focusing on the kitchen.  
Don't miss my talented friends at the end of the post, you'll want to pop over and check
 out their fun ideas too!    

You guys this is one of those, "I can't believe I waited so long to do this" items.
It's been three and a half years since I did our kitchen update for the One Room Challenge.
I LOVED the vibrant flat weave wool rug I chose, but sadly it was a maintenance nightmare,
and didn't last at our house. It attracted Golden Retriever hair like flies to dog doo!  


  In the meantime we lived with this BLAH brown, low maintenance natural
fiber rug that wore like iron and hid ALL the things! And, when I wanted to
change it up, I flipped it over! Yep, reversible to the other BLAH brown side!
If that wasn't enough, the edges started looking ratty and one corner curled a little that
 you tripped over if it wasn't strategically placed.

I've finally found something that I think will work, this medallion rug is $30, and has 
great reviews.  It's washable, I haven't had a washable rug for a zillion years, I didn't even
know they made them anymore. I'll let you know how it goes.

I love that it has the vibe of this beautiful rug...



Thanks for stopping by friends, hope you're inspired to make a little change.
We'll be back next Tuesday sharing more ideas.

Don't miss these friends' ideas!

Love love love the new rug - and I bet it hides your sweet girl's fur well pretty well too. You always find the best things! I need a runner for my kitchen, now you've got me thinking that spruce up needs to happen before the holidays!

Ha! We too have been making design decisions around a Golden Retriever with our daughter's pup living with us now. Just told hubby earlier today that I am so glad we hadn't done our floors yet because if he is even contemplating another one once she moves out with Henley, I will NEVER go dark!! Love the medallion rug. Currently looking for a few hall rugs myself.

From a good inspection, you'll find that a more significant price doesn't automatically imply superior quality, and some of the lesser-known cabinet lines are more durable. Here, RTA Cabinets are offering you the best price with quality.

Buy Tarpaulins said...

Heavyweight Tarpaulins are often used on a daily basis and are a necessary tool for protecting against extreme weather conditions. Heavyweight Tarpaulins have 12mm metal eyelets spaced 50cm apart and reinforced corners on all four edges. These tarps do not cover wear and tear or weather damage since they are composed of a more robust, strong material than other sheets. Are meant to be resilient and provide all-around water protection. These coverings are completely waterproof, recoil resistant, rot-proof, and UV protected, making them excellent for protecting valuables and fragile products from harsh weather and sunlight.
