Couple of new thing going on!!
First off, our RUG arrived!!
I absolutely love it. And love even more that it was only $75 at Urban Outfitters! Some of the other rugs I was considering were hundreds of dollars that I just didn’t want to spend.
Just like I expected from the reviews, it came folded up and took a few days to get the wrinkles out (they are still leaving..) and it was very thin and slippery, so I purchased an anti-slip pad to go underneath. I bought this one from Amazon for $39, bringing the total cost to about $120. Not bad at all considering the personality and functionality it brings!
We just have one MAJOR problem. I discovered last night that the pad and rug are now too high for the closet door to open!!! This means either sawing down the door (scary) or moving the rug (don’t wanna). I’m puzzled on what to do.
I decided to try out the Urban matching curtains, which were also very budget-friendly at $35 a pop. I bought two and hung them up for a trial to see how I liked them. Upon first glance, they were NOT THE SAME COLOR! The grey in the curtains is more blue and the rug is warmer. Not pleased.
Matt and I agreed they made the room too busy, so I decided to return them. We have 2 sets of white curtains in the attic we used at our old house that I think will give the room a simpler look. Out with the new.
I was thrilled to cross the cost of curtains off my budget list, however, I found a place to repurpose them!! My brain started cranking and they are now hanging in the basement! I’ve been hunting for curtains to replace the ones that came with the house (which I am not fond of) and these work very well! Unfortunately, instead of saving money, I had to buy a third, but I’m still very happy with the project’s outcome : )
More in-with-the-old! I found a My Breast Friend pillow – gently used – on Craigslist for $15!
And my friend Alex gave us a handful of her little boy clothes and a swaddle blanket! These are a few of them – cuteness! Thanks Alex!
Matt and I are having lots of fun playing with the little bear hat we bought for Baby KERF. Each of the bears have taken a turn wearing it and “spooking” each of us by hiding in funny places – like laundry baskets and drawers!
