Remember when I said that I wanted to do wall to wall jute as carpeting in our new home? Well, I imagined it all over the place. Then, I priced it out (it’s actually much more reasonably priced then other carpet alternatives) and “jute all over the house” got shoved into pipe dream mode.
That is, until I hurt myself. The carpet the previous owners had in the nursery was so threadbare that the nails were coming up. They literally stabbed my bare feet a couple of times. Ouch!
We actually HAD to remove the carpet and put in a new one. So, I dug into my pipe dream vault and found some fantastic jute carpeting. I absolutely love the way it looks.
You have seen this little corner of the nursery with the old carpet…
And now with the new…
My genius sister in law gave me the fantastic advice that I should get “hurt” all over the house to accomplish more pipe dreams.
These are the ones I’ve come up with…
“The stairwell carpet is so threadbare I slipped on it. We need Stark Antelope carpet immediately”
“Every time I walk into our living room, I sneeze. I’m absolutely certain it’s the carpet; we must replace it with hardwood”
“I’m going blind looking at Josie’s blank built in shelving; it needs to be covered with wallpaper”
Feel free to use my excuses in your own home. And remember to come back here for sound marriage advice.
Oh, and in other great news, the carpet matches Josie’s hair. Happy accident? I think not. Very much planned.
