I got the latest Ballard Designs catalog and, contrary to what I normally do, I looked through it rather than putting it in the recycling right away. I try not to look through catalogs anymore because I tend to order things that I wind up having buyer’s remorse about.
The Ballard’s catalog is a weakness for me! I love to look through the catalog for inspiration and sometimes an idea will pop out at me that I can copycat. Of course, I wound up ordering a couple of things. I thought a change to our dining area would be nice and ordered this burlap with jute fringe tablecloth.
Our dining table is 48” round so I couldn’t resist the sale price on this tablecloth. Although, I will have to remove it when we are going to be eating at this table since it is dry clean only.
The second thing I ordered was this indoor/outdoor rug, which was also on sale. I put this down in the laundry room area.
It will need a rug pad underneath to keep it from slipping, especially since the entrance to the house from the garage is here and that is the entrance we use. Don’t need anyone slipping! That’s on backorder, so for now we are being careful.
Excuse the mess ~ I was doing a bunch of laundry and just shoved things out of my way so I could put this rug down to see how it looked.
I have one more thing I just want to get for the dining area. I hope to have that by Wednesday and will share it with you later this week. It is something I finally decided on after going over different options, so I’m excited to finally get it done!
