Deal of the Week

I was at Lowe's this week to pick up paint and related supplies since I have finally gotten The Maven's room ready to paint.  Which will be happening tomorrow.

As I was scouring the aisles, I came across the clearance rack for rugs and spotted one I felt would look nice in my dining area.  It was a done deal when I spied the price:

Loaded her up into the car and brought her home, nervous that there was probably a huge hole or stain in the middle.

I had to wait for Mr. Tennis to come home to help me move the table and unfurl what I was hoping was a deal.  You can see from the old rug that many of our flooring choices used to be based on how resistant they were to dropped food, and dog or cat vomit.  Those days seem to be behind us so I am taking the chance with a lighter colored, less industrial look.  And there were no horrible surprises lurking in the rolled up rug!

I think it looks quite nice and goes very well with my thrift shop chairs (the Potter chairs would have never survived the rug change!) and the colors I have through the house.

Uh Oh, there goes one of those animal culprits as we speak!

Tomorrow. Painting. Next week. Hopefully, putting the room back into order with some fun new finds and window treatments.  Wish me luck!

Love the new "deal" you scored! I am so envious. :) Hope you are having fun and enjoy the weather and summer lazy days.

I don't know how you find the deals you do but I'm glad you do.
