My New Dining Room Rug

In case you’ve been following any of my dining room adventures with me, you know this room has been through quite a lot.

I’ve changed it many times and never could seem to get it right.

I’ve never once thought of having a rug in here as my kids and, well, us adults too are just so messy. But I’m telling you, I love a rug in the dining room!

There was so much dark wood in this room that this rug just broke up all that darkness.

I’m in love!

 Okay, let’s go back, way back, to check out the dining room again. This  is when we first moved in.

Then we painted the room a color I don’t like {I was pregnant meanly completely incapable of making paint color decisions}.

Here is our new paint color: Horizon by Behr. But there’s just something missing.

You know what was missing?

A rug!!

This rug is called Fancy Trellis Gray. They also have one in hot pink! Ooh la la.

Amazing right?

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed how my rug came.

There was a little dirt spot on one of the corners and I was really worried.

But I used a baby wipe and it came right off.

A BABY WIPE, people! Not even stain remover! So I’m pretty confident this rug is going to hold up to some messy dinners.

The rug is super plush and comfy. I’m surprised at how plus it is. And it doesn’t shed!

I know that sounds weird but I have other rugs in the house that shed even after years of use and they are definitely not as soft as this one.

Because I have other rugs in the house, it’s easy to compare.

For instance, my other rugs don’t have piping along the side like this one. Now I know that’s a matter of preference and I’m still getting used to it but I like my reviews to be 100% honest so it’s just something to keep in mind when you purchase a Mohawk rug.

I’m very impressed with the quality though and I’m a bit of a rug snob, if that’s such a thing!

Does it look like I just vacuumed my rug? Well I didn’t! In fact, I just took down all the party decorations in the room and there are threads everywhere!

You can barely seem them on this rug. It always looks like it’s been just vacuumed. That’s amazing!
