Behold: Our Lovely New Laundry Room Carpet

OK, remember last week when I ordered the cool little swirly rug for the front hall before realizing it was too small?  And then I ordered a bigger one, which is basically a big black square?  Yeah, that arrived today.  I excitedly laid it out in the front hall, and it fit beautifully!  But the door [the inner one which leads from the front hall to the house] wouldn’t open over it!  Gah!!!

So, after hemming and hawing for a few minutes, I decided it would look splendid in the laundry room:

And it does!  Hubby agreed.  The laundry room door doesn’t close over it, either, but one of the cat shelves is currently bolted into the doorway, so we can’t close that door anyways.  I like how it breaks up the ugly white tile [the same tile that’s in the front entrance hall and upstairs bathroom]:

So for now, we’ll keep the little swirly rug in the front hall:

UPDATE 8/20/15:

The black rug is now tossed in the basement. I wasn’t able to access the peg board and get to my tools since the door wouldn’t open over it. Major bummer!
