BLACK + DECKER Big Finish Progress

Since I was a whirlwind of paint for the first ten days of this BLACK + DECKER Big Finish challenge (bad blogger), I am scrambling to get things finished by December 10th.  This is actually proving to be a nice kick in the pants. 

I know I posted about three rug options on Monday. Howeeeever, after I was perusing Etsy for way too long, trying to find a small, colorful kilim, I decided to check out what Urban Outfitters had. My thought is always that surely if a trend has been on the market for 6-12 months, UO should have some kind of knock off ready. I have actually checked there in the past, several times, waiting for them to have one, because I knew eventually they would. And Monday was my lucky day, because they did. Most of the ones that I had found on Etsy were at least $150, and I was happy to find this one for something like $40:

Yes!!! I am glad that it is actually woven, and not printed. And, it was pretty great that it just happened to be Cyber Monday, because shipping was free, and I got $15 off my "$75 or more" order. 

Yep, while I was there, I looked at shower curtains for fun. And found one!

Yessssss. Finally a rug and shower curtain that I really love. I shouldn't have even bought the other ones. Dangit. Oh well. I moved the red rug downstairs, and it looks good by the front door. 

AND! In other exciting news, I picked out some cararra marble for the bathroom countertop. Woo! This is very, very, very exciting to me. I am using Christmas money to buy a new countertop for my guest bathroom. Weird? Kind of. I know that I will just go in there and stare at it. Weirdo.

Here's what it looks like now:

and what I found:

I like that it's a bit whiter, with less large gray veining. I wanted a more white slab, since the tile in the shower is also cararra, with LOTS of gray. I thought the contrast would be good. And it's honed marble, so it's not shiny. I think it'll be a nice change from that shower tile. And the honed marble will be softer. I was lucky to find a remnant slab. Wish me luck that I can get it in in 7 days?!? Ahhhh.

 If you haven't (or want to again :) ) checked out the BLACK + DECKER Big Finish initiative, please go here and see what everyone is up to! There are lots of cool projects to check out. And, like I said, you can enter to win their contest for $10,000 cash or some nice prizes. 

Thank you to BLACK+DECKER for sponsoring this post and inspiring me to FINALLY finish this room!
