Best Rug EVER…thanks Dude!

The rain had come & gone, thank goodness,
the candles were lit…
guests had all arrived…
the first sip of wine was enjoyed…
we could finally relax.
Then, these 2 rascals came running up to me whispering,
“Mama!  There is a huge puddle in the living room!”
In all the busy preparation we forgot to let Dude out!
You peed on our rug and Papa’s chairs!
Oh no.  Poor guy-he never has accidents.
Thanks Dude.
I hated that rug too…here’s before:
and here is after…
with my favorite affordable indoor/outdoor rug from Home Depot:
 Sorry…that was before we stopped at Home Depot yesterday.
I actually kind of liked it with no rug, but it gets cold here.
Here’s now:
Rugs are so expensive…
Home Depot sells an assortment of indoor/outdoor
rugs for way cheaper than indoor rugs I see in other stores.
I love the look of outdoor rugs inside.
This rug was $59 at Home Depot and it’s  5’3″x 7’4″.
I now have this rug in my kitchen,foyer, living room,and basement.
You can’t beat the price.

It’s extremely durable and wipes clean with a wet rag so easily when Dude gets his dirty paw prints on it.

Here it is in our kitchen:

    I have it and will probably order another one because I love it. Wish they still had the larger size. Lets start a campaign for Home Depot to bring this rug back!

    Beautiful room, great idea for the rug. I really like the dishes, could you tell me where they came from?

    Did you stencil the middle of the rug? Where can we find it if you did.
