As some of you may know by now- this summer and fall my blog has had a fairly consistent nesting theme and here is yet another to join the group. This time we tackled our floors- specifically our rugs! A little back story: we are renters and our apartment has lovely hardwood floors and we have a collection of area rugs that belonged to my grandparents. The problem is- they are hard to clean and do not provide the best playing on the floor with the baby- surface. Thus my folks bought us a new piece of carpet!

And here is the after shot!
A large rug not only quiets a space, provides us with a clean and soft area for our baby to crawl on, but it also makes the room look bigger and yet cozier all at the same time! And carpets don't have to cost a fortune. We scoped out local carpet places- for their scraps and leftover remnants and were able to get an 8x12 with bound edges for $160. NOTE: vacuum your new carpet immediately after installing it and again a few days later. I was amazed at all the fuzz that filled up our dyson!
