Home Sweet Apartment
So way back in July I ordered some stuff online from Urban Outfitters including this adorable little rug:
Well it was really really back ordered but it finally arrived yesterday! It had this plastic-y smell so I put it on my porch to air out. Wouldn't you know this morning a water main burst below my porch and showered my entire deck (cute rug included) with lovely muddy brown water. I didn't notice at first because I was distracted watching an SVU marathon and assembling goodie bags. However it only took me about a minute until I noticed the man on a ladder power hosing my deck and my now brown rug....
I awkwardly asked the workers what had happened, gazed sadly at my rug, then subtly closed my blinds and planned what I was going to say to the housing office about my ruined rug.
Anywho.. crisis adverted. I've washed it twice now and the mud as well as the plastic-y smell is gone. This has been without a doubt the most difficult rug I've ever owned.
