While I’m working on those posts and tutorials, I wanted to share this pretty rug find with you! My friend Kendra Smoot tipped me off to an eBay listing for this beautiful little Oushak rug (what a friend, right!?). I think I got it for just over $100 and I love how soft and worn it is. It’s slightly overdyed with blue and pink pastels. So pretty!
Right now I have it on the landing by the girls’ rooms. It fits the floor space perfectly up there. It might end up moving around to one of the other rooms, but I love it here for now.
I have the little scalloped secretary on the landing still, but I’ve yet to decide if I’m going to paint it or leave it as is. I’m leaning toward trying to paint it or doing a limed/cerused finish on a dark base. I think it would look so pretty if I could pull it off!
PS if you’re looking for a Oushak on eBay, always sort the listings by lowest price first. The private seller listings will almost always be auction style and not Buy It Now.
