Compelling Evidence of My Insanity!

I've had so many kitchen rugs.
 I've liked them all, but not necessarily in the kitchen. 
When this one came up at One Kings for $175, I grabbed it.  

The problem: It was brown, and I really wanted black.
Solution? Sharpies! Lots of them.
And my daughter (a.k.a. cheap labor...she works for cookies :)

Here is the rug before:

In progress:




And after.
I don't really love the room with red in it (I'll like it better on Dec 26 when the tree comes down), but you get the idea:




What do you think?
I hope to never have to do THAT project again!
I know, I'm completely insane.

The Single Best Acccessory for Any Room

Some designers say every room needs a little black. I agree with that, kind of - many, many rooms will benefit from some black, but not all (picture an all white room... surely there is a case to be made for that style, which has no black).  In general, I don't think you can apply a rule of any kind to all rooms of all styles.  The one exception, in my opinion, might be for mirrors - I DO think that all rooms need a mirror.  Or, put another way, I can't think of a room that couldn't use a mirror.  What do you think?  These particular images are all over sized mirrors.  I think in the case of shiny reflective things, more tends to be more...so I LOVE each and every one of these rooms:































Here is my own dining room, which I know you've seen, but I wanted to point out the mirrors. I used a LOT, which some people have criticised, but I love the way the room sparkles at night:
