Blue Monday: Rug and room

Smiling Sally hosts a Blue Monday in which we can post about anything blue — pretty, ugly, serious or funny — and then link up to other Blue Monday participants.

I haven’t participated in a Blue Monday since last March — I had run out of blue things! But now since my middle son just got married and moved out, and I am getting his room as a sewing/craft/guest room, and his room was just painted blue a few years ago, I am keeping that as a major color.

My husband took us rug shopping last week as one of his customers was having a sale. He encouraged me to look for a rug for this room, but at first I was reluctant to do so without the furniture in it yet to know what size I needed. But he found this one, and I love it.

There weren’t too many rugs with any blue, and fewer still with pink, so I was delighted with this.

That’s about all that is in there for now. But I am sure I’ll share pictures when it is finished — and maybe a few along the way. 🙂

  1. What a pretty rug. I love the pink in the rug too. I am in the middle of doing the same thing, turning a room into a sewing/craft room….but I am not moving too quickly…..

    Have a great Blue Monday.

  2. I look forward to seeing how this room progresses. The blue walls look to be the same color as one of our bedrooms. Love that color of blue. The rug is perfect match.
    Happy Blue Monday!

  3. Your new rug is pretty. It is neat that you are going to be setting up this room for yourself.

    All of our rooms are still filled. I wouldn’t be surprised if we were repurposing a room or two in the next five years or less.

    Have a happy day!

  5. I am glad you found a blue rug and joined us on Blue Monday again. It really is pretty and looks great where you have it. I appreciate your comment today and my visit.

  6. When I saw that blue rug in your post a few days ago, I had a feeling you’d include it for Blue Monday. After you’ve unrolled it, it looks even more beautiful!

    • awesome rug and how thoughtful that he was willing to bring you out to search for it. It is perfect for your room. I just transformed my boys play room into my craft room…love it. I hope it will be your favorite room. Many happy projects and afternoons to you in there!
