So we bought it.
Of course, I'm also trying to take advantage of any last minute cross-border shopping as my mom is finishing up her time in AZ mid-May. And is driving home. In a pick up truck :-) So in addition to a diaper bag and a stroller, this beauty will also be packed in the bed of the truck:
I think what put me over the edge was that there was a picture of it in an entryway:
I'm super excited about it. I hope it fits. I hope I like it :-) haha I'm not usually this impulsive but you know how I love a deal!! This rug (in our size) is $203 regularly and I got it for $99. Sweet!!
There was another colourway for sale that I thought I might prefer but unfortunately it wouldn't ship in time and would have ended up sitting on my mom's vacant doorstep for 8 months :-)
However in looking at the two, I think the one we purchased will work better with our stairway/front entrance plans :-)
What are you guys up to this weekend? We have a lot on the list, but not sure how much will get done.
1. Buy a sander. J to sand the stair treads.
2. Once the sanding is done, we are going to paint the doors upstairs, as I forgot to ask the painter to include that in the quote. The look SUPER creamy and dirty next to the bright white trim.
3. Hopefully get out to some of our favourite lighting spots to check out new lights for our upstairs hallway.
4. Purchase and install new switchplates for the hallway. They also look dingy and dated now.
In an ideal world, I'd also make it to Ikea to buy some frames for the hallway, but that is unlikely to happen. I am not as a) motivated or b) mobile as I used to be and I find that a few hours of walking/working/etc. puts me over the edge and I'm in rough shape after (i.e. issues walking, putting weight on one leg, etc). So we'll see.
Alright so tell me - what is the most impulsive home purchase you've made, and did you love it or did you regret it!?
