One Good Rug Deserves Another

Since my accent colors for the kitchen area are turquoise and yellow, I just had to find a way to use this over-dyed turquoise runner I'd spotted.

I fell in love with this runner and it was perfect for in front of the sink.

It has a lovely distressed look, which is perfect because that's often how I feel when doing dishes.

I decided the gray and yellow rug just didn't cut it.  Our other obstacle was arranging the furniture to see the TV.  

When Left Brain reminded me that the TV didn't have to be in the corner by the cable hookup, since we don't have cable anyway...well, then things rotated around dramatically.

First, it was back to Target to exchange the gray and yellow rug for another one of the distressed turquoise rugs in a larger size.  Then the furniture was grouped into a more pleasing arrangement that flows nicely.  Now the TV is viewable from the table and kitchen sink.

Note that Gracie is in her new favorite position at the top of the cat tower.

Long Live the Queen


  1. I love all the alterations that you've been making around the house. I especially love that blue recliner chair. Your distressed rugs are perfect. Makes the rooms look quite comfy and lived in.

    I'm off now to rest and watch a bit of TV. You have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Edna B.

  2. Susie Homemaker is obviously really busy. ENJOY. The hunt is part of the fun.
