Taking a Shot at Home Decorating

A few home decorating shows inspired me to change the look of my home. The only time I had really done any decorating was when I first moved into the home 10 years ago, and I didn’t know much about decorating then. I went to the local flea market to buy some asiatic rugs, but there weren’t any in stock, which was a surprise to me. All of the times that I’ve gone to the flea market, they always have those types of rugs available, but not this time. I guess everyone else was watching the same decorating shows as me and decided to buy all of the rugs.

Luckily when something becomes out of stock in the local stores, I can just order it online from one of the numerous web stores that exist. There was a little wait between the time I looked at the rugs and when I got them because of shipping, but that is to be expected when ordering things online. Maybe some time in the future, when shipping becomes so advanced that items can be delivered within a few minutes of ordering them, wait times will be a thing of the past, but that’s a long way from now.

I cleaned the old rugs in my home and gave them to a local thrift store for some credit. I can find a lot of useful things at the thrift store, sometimes in near mint condition. I was able to find an old television there that needed a new capacitor. I installed the new part and now the television works fine. I put some new curtains and cushions in my home to go with the new rugs. I was tempted to get a new sofa, but I decided to just put a covering over it to give it a new color.
