A realtor update and, oh hey, a new rug...

Thank you so much for all of your wonderful advice on my post yesterday! Here's a quick update:
  • We met with the realtor and her business partner last night.  
  • We loved them.  
  • We'll likely use them but we didn't sign a contract yet {I'm having it sent over today so that we can review it.}
  • They want to list the house for basically the same price that we paid for it 7 years ago. {Which we sort of expected.} 
  • Someone please hold my hair back while I puke at the thought of completing $40,000 worth of renovations and losing all of it.
  • I know it could be worse.
  • Our house will be listed within 24 hours of signing the contract.
So, yeah.  There's that.

But, hey... check out our new rug!

While preparing for both Reid's Baptism party and the listing of our house, we cleaned and organized every room from top to bottom.  And our master bedroom? Well, that probably needed the most work. {Sadly.} But now that it's done, man does it feel good to have everything organized. Out with the old, in with the new.  And just look how pretty it turned out =)

Oh... do you see that new pretty little thing in the corner of the picture?  That's our new area rug...
I love it! And anyone with hardwood floors can understand this... good area rugs are a MUST.  But finding quality rugs that are also in your budget? Nearly impossible. 

Enter: Rugs USA

After all that cleaning and organizing, I was finally able to put out my new Keno Trellis rug.  I could not wait to roll out this gorgeous rug in my room, but I wanted to wait until it was perfectly clean so that I could fully grasp the beauty it.  It totally brightens our room and the quality is fantastic.  And the kids love it almost as much as I do...

The rug is so plush, and the trellis design matches the style of our room, perfectly.

Rugs USA is currently having a 50% off sale! Use the code ESMA50 at checkout!

Happy shopping and thanks again for all of your wonderful advice yesterday!  Stay tuned for a full "before & after" house post coming soon. :)

I was provided this rug in exchange for my honest review.  As always, all opinions are my own.

I understand what you are going through about selling for the same price you paid. We had finished our entire basement, leveled our backyard with a 10 foot tall and 60 foot across retaining wall, not to mention everything we did inside and outside the house since it was brand new when we purchased it ( a cedar deck, landscape wall out front). That being said, now that we are settled in the new house where we want to be, we just look at it like we wouldn't have been in our new house without all the work and money. It is worth it in the end.
