A Splash of Color

My master bedroom has already been through countless iterations since I moved in May.  I recently decided I wouldn't be happy with it until I...

a) painted the walls 
b) built a girlie canopy  
c) got a fabulous rug

Painting will not only require landlord permissions, but disassembling and moving my furniture out of the room for a few days, an incredibly tall ladder and probably $60 worth of paint.  Building a girlie canopy I thought would be easier, but alas, my idea with discount window sheers won't work without assembling hardware, which I'm not willing to do.   Something about hardware I installed myself above my head while I dream sweet dreams is not a restful thought!!  

So, I decided to lust after gorgeous rugs online and hope one was on clearance.  Well, it wasn't at all what I was looking for...

This little guy was just over half off at $9.99 and most importantly, it made me laugh.  (If you haven't figured it out yet, the sole purpose for buying a lot of things is that it makes me laugh or smile spontaneously.)  So, I purchased it.  Wouldn't you know?  It made a HUGE difference over the grey rug that used to be there!!!

I've decided color is exactly what that room needs, and maybe I could get by with it not being on the walls after all.  I'm going to try my hardest to save up a little cash and scout clearance sections so I can buy a bit of colorful bedding.  Stay tuned!!
