Rug Hack- Combining Two 5'7 Rugs

I saw the perfect rug for my bedroom on clearance but of course, it was only for a 5x7 size and I needed at least an 8x10 to go under our king bed.

I decided to test out and grab two of the 5x7 rugs with the intention of putting them together to make one big rug. They were only $30 each where as the 8x10 was $200 so I figured I'd give it a shot. The rug had a lot of designs going on so I had a feeling my idea would work. I ordered these Gorilla Grip Rug Grippers on Amazon to "tape" the rug together so it wouldn't separate. 


I got an 8 pack because the trouble spot for me was the connection of the 2 rugs. I started by lining up the rugs as close as I could get to each other. I had to make sure the connection of the 2 was as flush as it could be and the borders on the edge of the rugs also lined up.

The Gorilla Grip grippers have a rug side and a floor side. The reviews said they don't damage your floors which I was worried about at first. I used the grippers right on the connection of the 2 rugs to secure them together.


Here is a close up of the final result

And a full view of the two rugs gripped together. I am happy with it. I am not sure if it is for everyone but if you're looking to save a few bucks this defiantly is an option!! 

Hope this helps you if you come across this!
