Little Rug Big Rug
So, here’s a totally random idea . . .
I have a big living room. A while back I was hunting for a giant rug to help cozy up the wood floors – which I love.
As we all know, the bigger the rug, the bigger the price tag and the thought of spending upwards of 1K for the size I needed was terrifying. No matter how much ‘vision’ I might have, how can I really know what something so large will look like until it’s actually on the floor??? (I’d love to hear how you guys have done it, by the way.)
So, instead, I bought 4 of the same rugs from good ole Urban Outfitters and slip stitched them together (tut to come).
For mine, I took into consideration how the edges would meet up a little since it was so line-y, but I don’t think it would really matter, depending on the design.
I could even see matching different rugs together for fun. It’s not the fanciest thing I ever did, but for about $120, it fit the bill.
