The rug for my dining room came.
I haven't opened it yet. My sister was nice enough to schlep out to Ikea to get it. My dad was nice enough to bring it to Wilmington for me. Now what if it doesn't work? There is no way I am driving it back to Charlotte. It's got to work right? I am going to screw up my courage and open it...soon.
It looks extra good in this entrance hall.
Then again they don't usually photograph and publish the ugly rooms with the wrong rug that someone bought on a whim without ever seeing it in person.
Cross your fingers and I 'll let you know how it turns out.
By the way, some of the pictures are probably of Madeline Weinrib's rug that Ikea copied so people like me could afford to buy it on a whim and worry themselves sick over it.
