I randomly love hardware stores and always sneak around to check out stuff while Beau stays on task, doing things like finding properly-sized wing nuts, returning hose attachments, and other critical tasks that I know you want to hear all about.
Lucky for you, I was compelled to snap this.
Allen and Roth jute rugs. I think the weave looks pretty high quality, no?
Now, the kicker. If you happen to like one of the in-stock floor models, you can snatch it for $88.00 for a 5 x 8. You can also order them, but the insanely dirt cheap prices are restricted to the "floor models." The Lowe's on Jefferson Hwy. currently has a 5 x 8 in the light light brown.
If you don't live in Nola, I am sure you can still take advantage of the very affordable price on this pretty good lookin' jute at Lowe's. Let me know if you snag one!
