I found this really cute Dash and Albert rug, and i like it on my yucky carpet stairs, but i have 2 dilemmas, one is... how in the heck do i get it to stay put???
Do I nail it down, or do i go buy those stair bar thingys that hold rugs? i bet they're expensive, can't i just nail it down, is that really really bad... of course being really really bad never stopped me before.
Right now my son is living upstairs,,, so lets see how long before he goes skidding down the steps on the cute rug, or before he sloshes something impenetrable by any cleaning agent known to man, like mustard and texas pete, his favorite condiments... of course..
Number two dilemma is... it doesn't cover the whole stairs, I really need another one, but can i get by with just one???. It costs $84.00, hmmmm... It's really really cute... but another $84.00...
Let me see, oil change, dentist, or really cute blue and white striped rug???
and remember this sideboard, the one i painted around 70 different colors before i gave up and painted it white... well, what do you think of this combination, with the gray and white... and maybe i'll do something on this sideboard, like the one at

Here is the sideboard when i first got it, it was free
which was cool, except i've spent eleventy billion hours messing with it..
here is when i painted it blue and white, and i thought it looked too countrified
Here is where i gave up and finally painted it all back white again....
and here is the latest attempt... what do you think?
