It's true. For myself, I think I would rather "get a great deal" than "pay for the perfect thing." But. The more I work towards a finished product around here, the more I realize that it pays to wait. It's the lesson I refuse to learn.
The moment I opened the package for this rug, I knew it was not going to work. The colors were brighter/cleaner/ sharper than they had appeared online.
But of course I unpacked it anyway, and moved all the furniture, and tried it out right proper.
And: nope. Still didn't work.
It's actually pretty cute in the room as seen here, but in an open plan house that's just not enough, and it fought with the living room. Like, dukes up.
And it would have been cats and dogs with the leopard print chairs I just bought.
Yup, I will leave that one hanging.
