Cute rug! But the way it's laying on the floor in that picture makes me think it's fairly thin, which wouldn't do much for dampening noise. I used to have a small rug that laid like that & the vacuum cleaner would try to suck it right up & it was a huge pain to clean.
thanks! the noise thing isn't really a factor anymore bc i'm not working out in my apartment (though i should be. eek) but the other part is a good point, thanks!
Have you ever shopped at Home Goods? I have a ton of things in my place from there. I think you're in NYC if I remember right from another thread. There's a store in Secaucus if you have access to (or someone with) a car. And their site says a new store will be opening on Columbus & 100th at the end of May if you're going to take your time decorating.
yea, a few of them were more expensive....I was just generally showing as examples. Awwww, no home depot? I used to love that store when I owned a house. I just wanted to buy their sample kitchens and bathrooms.
Anyhow, my advice still stands....focus on one thing at a time. Better for your wallet and your sanity!
