Join me as I embrace and share American country style by reclaiming the past...my family's past. Come along as I make my house a home on a $0 budget with reclaimed, repurposed, recycled and found treasures all out of my grandparents' old house, local junk shops and my parents' attic. And since we have to eat too, I'll sprinkle in some gardening, country recipes, and a whole lot of southern hospitality.

What's under your rug?

Anyone who really knows me is well aware of my passion for buying American-made products. If you look at labels like I do, you will know how difficult it is to find products of any kind that are made in America. So, you can imagine my excitement when I was contacted by one of the founders of Rug Pad USA offering to send me one of their made-in-USA rug pads to try. 

You are probably wondering why I would be excited about a rug pad. Remember the jute rug I bought back in the winter?


Pin It



I really do love the way it looks, but I didn't like the way it moved around on the floor and the way it felt when I walked on it. It was definitely not child friendly. Underneath I had a typical rubber rug pad bought from a big box store. 

I jumped at the chance to try one from Rug Pad USA, especially when I found out they are also eco-friendly. That combined with made in USA, and I was totally on board. 

All of these rug pads are cut to order, not pre-packaged. After I told them what I needed--cushioning and stability, they chose one to go with my jute rug. When mine arrived, I couldn't wait to get it down, and oh my goodness what a difference it made!


Not only does it cushion my jute rug and make it feel so much better, it also holds it securely in place on the floor and it won't damage my hardwood floors. 


I have had it down for about three weeks and I am really impressed with the difference it has made. Add to that how excited I am to know there is an alternative to the chemically-laced foreign made rug pads I have bought before. 

So yes, I am excited about rug pads. I am excited to recommend American-made, chemical free, eco-friendly rug pads that are the best quality I have seen. They also offer free shipping and I know we all love that. 

You can find out more about this company and its products at the website: Rug Pad USA. And, just for you guys, they are offering 15% with coupon code pr15off.

Please check them out if you are in the market for a good quality rug pad. 



**The rug pad was provided by Rug Pad USA and the opinions are totally mine based on my experience with the product.
