We're Still Getting Things Together At Fleur De Lis - Home Sourse. On My Short List Was Getting Some Floor Coverings. Status: Check.
I've been looking around craigslist for about a week hoping to find some decent rugs at a cheap price for the shop. Nothing worth sending an e-mail over showed up, but today I stopped by Garden Ridge to see if they had any more good upholstery material remnants. Guess what, they got tons of rugs!
But first, check out the Peacock chairs I got for Mom-tomic over the weekend! Aren't these just so
over the top? I knew that my Mom would like them and when she asked if I could snatch them up for
her, I was happy to. I think these will look great sitting out front of the shop...for the short time they'll
be there until someone else snatches them up!
These are the two rugs that I picked up today. They were / are very cheap. I wouldn't expect them to
last long in a home but they don't have to do much more than look good here in the shop. Plus, if they
do get ruined here, I won't be out much money. After I got them here in the shop I realized that I could
have used another, but I can always go back and get one more. Garden Ridge (a giant box style decor
store) has TONS more. Actually, I might pick up another of that top one for the home. Who cares if
it's a cheap rug. It looks so cool! It's got a real Brasilia vibe to it. I wanna say that the second one has
a Kandinsky vibe but I can't find any Kandinsky paintings like it.
I (of course) stopped at a thrift or three while out running around, but all I found was this nifty "Eames"
inspired magazine rack. I've got another very similar one here at home that I've been reluctant to let go,
now I don't have to! The barrel shade is from yesterday's thrifting. I remembered to bring it home so
as to fit it with a proper base. And so went my Sunday. Hope you had a good weekend too!
