Sisal rugs have ‘em. Don’t let them tell you otherwise.
As a result I may be getting over my addiction.
We’ve loved the look of our $99 World Market sisal rug in our dining room for over three years now. However, we’ve also come to the conclusion that perhaps we shouldn’t keep hanging on to a rug that Barton and Lucy have had their way with so many times. You know what I’m talking about.
As dirty as a pee-d on, dog magnet rug is, the dirtier secret I’m referring to is what happened after we rolled it up to replace it.
I SWEAR we vacuum our house!
Gotta admit that I’m not sure what the deal is. This rug has been down for over three years so I’m not sure if this pile of dirt is household dirt that fell through the large weave of the rug, collecting on the floor – or if the rug itself is shedding filth. To save my sanity we’ll all agree it’s the rug, okay?
Needless to say I’m now even happier that we’ve replaced it. And check out what we found!
Aren’t the colors such a great addition? I used to be a complete rug-phobe - in fact at one point we had three sisal rugs in our house because I was terrified to buy anything else.
Despite their shedding, sisal rugs really can be the perfect option for so many spaces, but it also feels great to get out of our rug comfort zone a bit with brightly patterned one.
This little vintage number was only $150 and came from FINDS in Raleigh. If you’ve shopped for rugs lately you know that this is a steal for the size.
