Here recently I came across a lady on YouTube called Mr.Kate link to her channel is Here. She's this big ball of energy and fun packaged into this tiny body. Our styles are no where near the same...that is until I saw her office chair had something draped over them and I desired it in my home. Here's the video that started it all...it made me go onto Ikea's website and order them before her video was even over. The Faux Sheepskin rugs by TEJN, the fact that each was 9.99 is what really reeled me in. Two orders later I was watching out for the FedEx man every day to deliver them.
One week later they arrived packaged very well, enclosed in a water proof bag. Which was a good thing, because it was raining the day they arrived. They were exactly what I expected, they looked exactly like Mr.Kates which led me to quickly run around the house with is billowing behind me like a superhero cape. I already had a use for one of the rugs I bought (Which I cant show until our final Dinning Room reveal), but the second one I'm currently at a loss for. I have no intention of using them as a rug. Mainly because all three of our dogs have been eyeing it longingly.
Because its faux the fur isn't as soft as you will expect. Its made very well and is a decent size. It would work well in any room of our house. I might even buy a third to put in our guest bathroom, since its hardly used. I personally wouldn't have it somewhere where it could get wet, or dirty very easy. It's white and dirt will show. They also recommend you don't wash them because it will ruin the rugs. The price is perfect for it, not too high or too low. The bottom of the rug is a rough material, which I cant describe what it reminds me of. Maybe burlap but not as rough?
1. Tree Skirt: As a huge Christmas person I love this idea. It would go perfect with our 8ft faux white tree. I'm sure you could make them into stockings as well.
2. Pillows: The fabric is super soft and would be great for this purpose.
3. Sew two together and get a longer rug OR a amazing table runner!
4. Reupholster Chairs and Stools!
5. Furniture decor!
6. A bean bag!!
7. Photo Props
I love the ideas I found online! What and or how would you use one for?
1. Dog Bed
2. Tug of war toy for the dogs
3. Something to chase the dogs with.
4. A gift for someone, so that is out of our house.
As you can see he doesn't like them.
