Remember that advice I gave on Monday about taking things one step at a time?
Throw it out the window.
And while you’re at it, let down your hair or loosen your tie or whatever it is you do to feel just a tad freer.
Because sometimes, when you find a 5’x7′ neutral but-not-boring natural fiber rug for
$120 half off at $60, it’s time to veer from your course and make an impulse buy.
Truth be told, you were already veering off the straight and narrow by going to Hobby Lobby to buy dresser knobs when you were supposed to be finishing the half bath, but we won’t tell anyone. 😉
All joking aside, I do think this is one of those lessons in creating a beautiful, layered home on a budget.
Sometimes, you can’t find everything you need for one space at one time.
And when you find something the perfect size that blends with your other rugs…
And maintains that neutral, casual, textured feel you love…
It’s time to jump on it. It’s another one of those reminders that the art of living requires balance between discipline and spontaneity.
And a reminder to check Hobby Lobby’s rugs when they’re 50% off. 😉 You’re welcome.
What was your most fun unplanned purchase for your home?
