Brmm Brmmmm!!! Chevron!

Yes I just said "Brmm Brmm" like a little kid.  I specifically picture my 3 year old nephew saying it while pushing a car or fire truck down the hallway (He's all boy!).   Chevron print = Chevy car - ya get??? Hehe   ... Ok, maybe I tried to hard on that title but oh well here it is - my blog on CHEVRON.  You had to know that there was going to be a blog soon that featured the great print of Chevron.  It is everywhere now a days... on our pillows, on our throws, on our rugs, on our earrings and on our tissue boxes (which I have to admit it looks really cool on a tissue box, who knew?!?!?).  So where can us "thrifty" shoppers and designers find this fun pattern at a fun, affordable price - Overstock.com!

Here are some great rugs I found on their site and I was totally impressed by their prices:
This one comes in black or brown and it is an 8'x10' for only $153.99! Click HERE for the link. This Chevron is a little smaller than the ones you see on the design blogs and in magazines; however, it is a great affordable alternative.  I love that it comes in brown also!  I definitely plan on buying this for our new house...picturing it in my office.

For a more distinct Chevron pattern than you might like this rug more:
Hand-tufted Alexa Spectrum Chevron Wool Rug (5' x 8')

The above rug can also be found at Overstock.com for the amazing price of $210!  It is a 5'x8' rug size and I love it's bigger distinct pattern.  Click HERE for the link.
