It takes my hero, Donna at FJI, to make me "gitter dun and quit stallin'!"
The Farmer does not understand the power of my blogging buds.
Why couldn't I deal with this under my own steam?!
Yeah, we're crazy busy makin' hay but...
We're not talking some elaborate creative DIY endeavor.
No, we're talking a nasty rug that needed attention of some sort.
You see, I have this leopard rug that I am way too attached to and puppy Olivia had nearly destroyed.
It was gross.
She was apparently sick during the night and wanted to "hide" it...
Come morning I found my cherished, all but indestructible rug, covered in nasty and clawed n torn as she tried to ball it up and bury the evidence.
I was so upset that I sprayed it off well with every chemical I could find in my organic home and left it out on the porch.
Way t o o long.
I couldn't face throwing it away and didn't think it was salvageable...
Instead, in my current mode of make do or do without, I threw down a hooked rug that barely passed worked.
Thanks to Donna's admonition to get something finished that we'd put off, I DID IT!
Voila - my rug is resurrected!!! see above
(Sorry, you didn't want a "before" shot anyway!)
It'd actually come pretty clean so all I had to do was cut off all the ripped fringe and brush up the nap really well.
It's not much, but to me, in my current overload mode, it's a lot.
As is just joining MY FIRST LINKY PARTY
THANKS DONNA! :-)
Here're a few pics of the rest of the powder room ...
The wall color is actually not that gold at all. More camel/tan. Stupid flash.
I used old junk to give this new room some character;
farm journals & a wrench off Ebay that feature my name, etchings, a baby stirrup and horse bits to hang the hand towel and hold back the curtain...
All was stuff I'd collected over time and just grouped in a new way.
My mom gave me the old medicine cabinet that had a gold (ick) detail on the mirror.
I paadded an old tractor sticker that matched.
I did wipe up after the messy short people, wash the bowls and cobweb.
Only so much I can git dun, sorry Donna!
Have another party and I'll tackle more! ;-P
So now you know the dirt on me...
Sorry if it's TooMuchInformation! ;-)
