Hello , everyone .
Welcome back to my channel .
If you're new , welcome .
My name is Sherita and the name of my channel is unique by Sherita .
So in today's video , we have a decorate with me video .
I'll be decorating our dining nook in our hearth room or some call it the sitting area .
It's where we hang out and watch TV V and do family time .
It's the room that's adjoining our kitchen and dining .
So I just received these two packages and they are from rugs , USA .
It's a rug and a rug pad and I'm going to go ahead and unwrap it and then roll it up to make sure I get rid of any creases that may have occurred during shipping .
Not only does rolling the rug up help with the creases , but it also makes it easier for me to lay the rug out on the floor for use in whatever space you're going to put it in .
And a lot of times when you roll it back up , you don't want to let it sit longer than uh I would say longer than 24 hours because you don't want that that fold on the other end of the rug from rolling it up .
So es especially when it's a large rug and this one is a nine by 12 on paper and I'll tell you more about the measurements later on in the video .
Alright , so it's the next day and I was home alone and I decided to go ahead and start moving everything out the way so we can go ahead and put down our new rug and I use these furniture sliders .
They come in handy .
The slick ones are recommended on carpet and the ones that have the little covers , the gray covers , they're actually meant to go on like hardwood floors .
So you won't scratch your floor up and usually it's a lot easier to push .
But as you can see , I'm starting the push on carpet and these are recommended on slick floors .
So once I got off the off of the carpet part , I had no more problems .
Now , if it was two of us doing it , then I would have , uh , rotated from the slicker ones to the carpeted ones .
Oh , sorry .
So now I'm just going to roll up my old rug and rug pad and set them out to the side just out of the way .
And uh Rug USA is sponsoring a video for me on Instagram .
So I definitely wanted to share it with my youtube family .
I'll be using their nine by 12 non slip rug pad they sent me which can be cut down to size with scissors .
And you'll see me use this scissors and cut it down to size .
Later on .
In the video .
A rug pad is an important part of any rug set up as it provides an extra layer of cushioning and protection for both the rug and the floors below .
And as you can see , I always use my rug pads , but this one is a lot nicer with the non slip pad and non slip layer .
I recommend using a rug pad in any room with hardwood laminate towel or other hard floor surfaces .
And here is my favorite part , my new rug .
I absolutely absolutely love this new rug .
It is beautiful .
This is where I mentioned earlier that I'll tell you about the size and basically the rug pack is a nine by 12 and the rug online says nine by 12 also .
But I read the description and I also read the comments and I do this as if I'm purchasing the rug with my money .
As I mentioned , this is part of a collab over on another platform .
So the rug measurements are 100 and four inches by , by 100 and 42 inches .
So it's not quite nine by 12 , but it's perfect for my space .
So if it was 100 and eight inches , it would have extended in my walkway area too much .
So this was perfect .
I just needed to cut my rug pad and I'm going to do that after I put all of my furniture back in place .
And this straight , I have two of these and I use it under my uh bar cabinet as well as under my bookshelf .
And I keep some of my favorite magazines in it .
Like restoration , hardware , ballet designs .
Z Gallery .
That's where I store them kind of out of the way .
And if it looks like I'm moving this rug really easy .
I actually am .
I'm using a old maybe two by three rug upside down or right side up .
In other words , and I'm using it to slide the rug across the floor .
You can also use those rugs to move furniture as well .
I'm going to go ahead and cut the rug pad using scissors and basically I just used a marker and marked the line right underneath the little lip of the rug and went all the way down the side of it .
Very easy to cut .
This rug pad was really easy to cut .
It looks a little awkward because I'm trying to make sure I film and record enough for you to see what I'm doing .
So I'm I'm actually cutting on my left side when I really want to cut on my right side .
Alright , so let's decorate the space and I'm going to be using all the items I already had .
The only new purchase is going to be a candle that I got from Walmart it was on clearance I think it was regular $20 and I paid seven and I wanted to show you these pillows because this is my color palette for the space we got gray black and tape .
No , we're coughing and take a trip .
David done .
Yeah , figure is is on I taste .
Alright , so let's move into the dining look and these boxes are part of a collab that I'm doing for my kitchen area .
I painted my kitchen sometime last year and I've been organizing my cabinet , drawers and doors and things like that and um those were the final pieces I needed in my in my drawers .
So we'll share that in another video .
Let's continue with decorating this space .
As I mentioned , these are some items I already had .
I'm using this blue box .
I am tempted to spray paint it black .
I'm pretty sure I will use a satin finish and just spray paint it black because I don't use a lot of blue in my home .
So either black or I pulled down one of the cream boxes , but I just wanted to layer that area over there and I didn't have any more coffee table books .
They're all on the coffee tables and as well as the bookshelf .
So I didn't have any to add over here and I'm not going to buy any more unless I go to the thrift store .
Alright , so we're going to add these few little items over here and that is going to be my final look .
So now I am going to scan the room to see if I'm missing anything and move and make any adjustments if needed .
So , while scanning I notice I do not have any um coasters out .
So I have some that my husband and I picked up when we went to California last year and I absolutely love them and I'm going to be using a tray to display them in that actually goes to a little serving tray .
So we're going to use these and it's a little bit of light wood , which is fine because the coasters aren't covering up majority of the tray .
So let's scan the room again and I'm happy to say everything is looking really nice to me .
And I'm I'm very happy with the way this space turned out .
I absolutely love my new rug .
According to the , the um reviews , I read the larger the rug , the larger the print .
And of course , I love my large print and I'm I'm assuming the smaller the rug , the smaller the print .
So in this case , this rug is perfect for my space now over on my TV .
That's just a youtube channel .
It's screen saver .
So there's one for fire , fire places , seasons of the year and art then you can also do the ones with the matte background and I just told a simple classic art and they play for hours , the art will change up so you won't have any technical issues or discoloring with your TV , just with showing a screen saver on your television .
So I really like the way it looks , it gives the illusion of artwork about you .
