Quick Fix: Put a Rug on it

Before 


After
 

It's amazing how something as simple as a rug can completely transform a room. It's also amazing how deplorable my photography skills are. I'm inclined to blame my camera...

Oh. Do you see the diner clock in the top left of the "After" pick? Yup. This is what it looked like later that same evening:

Awesome, right? The sticky hook FAILED miserably. I followed the directions; I cleaned the wall with rubbing alcohol, I pressed, I removed the hook and pressed some more, I waited an hour (or five) to hang the clock on it. Grr.

The rug definitely makes a big difference...much better:) I'm sorry about your clock:( I've wanted to try those sticky hooks but my husband always warns me against them. Now I believe him!

I'm glad you liked my Big Lots mirror re-do, I actually saw someone selling the same thing on Etsy for $49 plus shipping!!!

Stopped by from Debbiedoos, I loooove your little house and added myself as a follower:)

The rug is great! It really brings the room to life. Sorry about the lamp...hopefully nobody was standing under it. :)

LOVE LOVE LOVE the rug. It's so wild, but awesome! It's perfect for that room.

And, I'm really upset about the clock. That's just not fair. It's so cute, too.
