My Uncle Rex would think I had been dancing if I told him I had cut a rug.
Nope, no dancing, I really cut a rug.
For the last few weeks, maybe months, I have been cleaning and decluttering our entire house. Most of it is finished. Yea!
After switching things around, I ended up with a runner size rug that matched in color to our breakfast room/turned kitchen addition, but it was the wrong length for the pace it needed to be.
It is too hot to go rug shopping and this rug matched so, I did a redneck alteration to it.
First, I marked the cutting line on the back and started cutting. I used an old pair o heavy scissors and this was the hardest part.
The design is not perfectly semetrical I think it is fine.
This rug is at the back door and the cut end is close to the armoire so it won't get much traffic.
I am really happy with it. I made something work with very little effort and no cost.
But looking at this photo, I think touch up painting to the trim needs to be added to the to-do list.
There is always something to keep me busy! You too?
