Hi all. I am loving everything about our new kitchen rug except one thing. It curls up on the ends. When we were away for two weeks, I put books on the edges hoping that their weight would permanently press the rug down. The books didn’t work – at all. Then I had the good luck to read a suggestion about keeping rugs in place on another blog, and so, I gave her suggestion a try. I am happy to confirm her findings. The solution for keeping rugs in place is gaffer tape.
This is how it looked before we left for our trip to Colombia, and it looked the same way when we returned – even though the books had been on top of it.
This is how it looks now that I am using gaffer tape. It will also keep your rugs from sliding. The claim is that it will not leave a sticky residue on your floors if/when you remove it. It is normally used in the movie/theater industry. I’m so glad I found this tip over at Kristin’s. It is making my life a little easier. If you want to see another update I made in the kitchen, go here.
Thanks for stopping in and please stop by these other blogs for a fun blog hop.
