Our New Mohawk Rug

I have said in previous posts that as of now we are hesitant to buy a lot of things for our condo because in a few years we might move again and have a different configuration of rooms,etc. But I was literally jumping up and down when I found out that I had won a 6’x9′ Smartstrand carpet from Mohawk Flooring. Giveaway I won. We were allowed to pick from 40 different colors HERE, and it was shipped to us for free. It arrived WAY faster than I was expecting, but below are pictures of the process.

 Here is what our living room looked like before the rug.

Anyway, I hauled this rug up the stairs, and moved the furniture away to make room.

I used a utility knife to cut off the wrapping and started to position it.

We chose the color Lobster Fork which is a very light grey. Our wall colors are a werid pink/purple/white depending on the lighting so we know it isn’t the best color with these walls,but we aren’t allowed to paint them. Also, this is a color we want to have later in life in our hopefully future house.

I am pretty excited because this rug has a lot of great reviews and features that make this rug even better than the fact that we got it for free. Read about those features here.

We love how it still had the colors we like,but it definitely makes our place feel more cozy.
