Then a friend of mine posted on facebook that she was selling a rug that fit my needs perfectly for only $60. Perfect!
And it really is great for the space. It covers up a good bit of the tile and Ollie enjoys laying on it while I work in the kitchen. Plus the since the cost was reasonable I don't feel bad if I accidentally drop something on it while cooking.
Have you found great deals before on sites like facebook or craigslist? What do you think of rugs in a kitchen area?
