See this space right here at the bottom of the stairs?
This is Buddy’s favorite space in the entire house.
I can’t blame him.
The sunlight pours in from the windows and it’s one of the warmest places in the house and it’s not too far from the kitchen and all his dog food.
Here’s where you’ll find him.
You get the general Buddy idea.
And I love Buddy.
And I love that he feels at home.
And I love that’s he’s cozy.
But just between us?
That rug has HAD IT. That is a lot of Buddy and a lot of dog hair and all the stuff that dogs leave behind.
So I’m trying something different now.
Can you guess?
A washable rug.
Have you heard of washable rugs before? It’s exactly what it sounds like. You can wash the rugs in the washing machine. If you get a smaller spill, you spot clean the rug with a cotton cloth or paper towel. Blot lightly and work from the edges to the center of the stain. Start with water and blot the stain. If stain is more challenging, you can use a solution of dish soap and cold water. For larger spills or more stubborn stains, place the rug in the washer on a delicate setting and then hang to dry.
A rug that goes in the washing machine.
And I thought life was already amazing enough now that stirrup pants are back.
Walmart has an incredible collection of washable rugs. There are tons of colors and patterns and finishes and sizes that would work in so many different spaces. I’ve put together some of my favorites.
This distressed bohemian blue rug is so pretty.
I love anything blue and white and this would work well in the entry (and upstairs in Whitney’s room, too).
And it comes in an 8′ x 10′.
You can see it here.
These are both similar with a white background and a distressed pattern.
I love that they look so vintage.
You can see the distressed ivory gray trellis rug here.
You can see the distressed blue and white pattern here.
Here’s the same rug in two different colorways.
I love both and they would work in so many different spaces because of the layers of colors.
Here are two options that would work perfectly with modern farmhouse decor.
They are both a little vintage and distressed looking.
I saved my two favorites for last.
But for the space in the entry?
I think this last option will work perfectly. Look at how similar it is to the rug that’s already there. It’s a little more vintage and a little more distressed looking.
But the colors are the same.
And when Buddy lays down and all the dog hairs and dog stuff get all over the rug?
I can just toss it in the washing machine and it will be all ready and waiting.
For the next time Buddy takes a nap.
