This was more of a “try something I learned” on Pinterest sort of thing but I still thought I would share the results.
|[You’re Too Crafty]|
We have hardwood floors that run from our foyer all the way to and throughout the kitchen. In my dreamworld, we actually have hardwood floors throughout our entire main level…someday…
We have rugs that sit at our front door and the door that leads in from the garage to try and catch the dirt, water, etc. that attaches itself to our shoes. Sometimes we even get the gift of a little bunny poop on our shoes but, these days, it has been a lot of water thanks to the constant rain. No, I don’t live in Seattle but recently it has felt like it.
Right now, the rugs being on the hardwood lead to
Yeah, I’ve eaten it just a few times on those rugs. My plan had been to just pick up two rug pads and shove them underneath. Pinterest convinced me there was an even easier (and cheaper!) solution though.
I grabbed my supplies: the rug (duh!) and some silicone caulk.
I squeezed three separate lines of caulk onto the back of my rugs. Then, I left them there (upside down) for a few hours to dry.
Once dry, the (now) non-slip rugs went right back into their places. A quick $3 fix and, now, I don’t have to worry about breaking a
hip leg every time I walk through my front door. I’m sure my insurance company appreciates that!
