Just popping in with a quick little update in Zoey’s room today. If you can remember back to this post, we had hunted down a fun, geometric rug for the space and I even defended it’s small, 4′ x 6′ size. Well, today I’m here to say that I was wrong. Close your ears Ricky.
Yep, I thought with the addition of a second bed down the road (for Lizzy) that the smaller size would fit snuggly between the two. But, after living with the rug for a few months I realized that it just wasn’t going to work out. Maybe in another space, but in a kids’ room I wanted something that would cover the majority of the room and really serve as the grounds for play space.
Luckily, after a few weeks of checking my favorite flash sale sites, Joss & Main ran a sale and I was able to score the very same rug in the larger 5′ x 8′. Such a difference.
It really feels like it ‘fits’ the room now, and it grounds the furniture pieces better, barely gracing the edges of them. The color and pattern haven’t changed, so nothing new there, but the extra 16 sq. ft. are well worth biting the bullet and re-purchasing. Sometimes it just takes more than one try to get things right. And we’re ok with that!
As for the old rug, since we had opened it and held onto it for several months, returning was out of the question. But I’m thinking it’s a good contender for the laundry room. We’ll see.. The neutral colors should be pretty easy to fit in somewhere!
How about you guys? Anyone else facing the music on an old purchase and swapping out for something new and more functional? Ok. Please tell me you guys are watching Game of Thrones. Best. Show. Ever.
