What if you were torn between grabbing a big glass of wine or finding a bargain/project? I’m going to help you do it all, people. First, go get your wine. Ready with the Chard? Now for the bargain/project: Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores have a surplus of designer carpet squares, so they’re unloading them for $2 apiece. Here’s where the project comes in. The good people at Habitat suggest using the squares to create a personalized accent rug or wall art. Carpet squares measure 20 inches by 20 inches. So piece together four, six, or eight squares in a variety of colors and patterns for your own design goodness.
Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t remind you to apply for Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity’s Design Duel for a chance to win a $3,000 design makeover led by a team of local designers. The deadline to enter is September 14, and homeowners can apply in the ReStores or online at designduel.org.
