rugs - a very easy pimp

i've always preferred rugs to carpet. they are inexpensive, nice to the touch, homey, cosy, unassuming and easy to wash.



so, when i needed a flooring for my study... an inexpensive one, i thought 'rugs'. but how do you make rugs into flooring? they come in little pieces.

like this?



assemble them like a jigsaw puzzle and sew the edges together. simply bohemian! and since my furniture and fittings were already there, i worked the rugs around them. as for the extra edges here and there, i cut them off and use the cut-offs for something else. worked out quite well for me :)

if one day i decide not to use them as flooring anymore, i'll just unpick the thread that holds them together and get my pile of rugs back :)

happy pimping! :)
