Cowhide Rug

The den is one of the most used rooms in our home.  It’s Handyman Husband’s “room,” but he shares it quite a bit with the kids!  We bought a rug for the den when we first bought our home.  The colors and pattern were perfect; however, it had a woven type weave, and after almost 6 years, it finally bit the dust.  The rug met many, many monster trucks, blocks, two Miniature Dachshunds, trains, puzzles, more monster trucks, boats, and two kids!  So, a new search for the perfect rug began…

IMG_2776Originally, I was looking for a natural type rug such as a sisal or jute to go underneath the cowhide rug.  I still may add a natural rug, but right now, we are enjoying the simplicity of the cowhide rug!

Rugs are a simple way to change up a room for a new and updated look!

Enjoy the day!

  • I love a cowhide rug. I would see them when I lived in Birmingham, AL, but not often. However, here in Dallas, TX I see them all the time. They are authentic and therefore they come off to me as being so true. No one added anything to them to make them something other than what they are – I love that. I also have come to love antlers.

    • Hi Patty! Thank you for your kind comment! The cowhide rug is a definite keeper! I love how you said, “it’s authentic!” And I too love antlers! I’ve posted about mine…Charles Faudree’ inspired me!
