In November, I obtained a trade account with Wayfair and found the same rug on there in different sizes and much more affordable prices. I was excited! I ordered the 5x8 that retails for $135. (It has since gone up in price so keep an eye out for sales. However, for the size, the new retail of $154 is still a good price!).
My search led me to two websites with excellent money back guarantees as well as free samples to test colors in your home! Yes, thats right, free blind samples and you didn't even have to pay shipping! These two websites are www.blindsaver.ca and www.blindsgalore.ca
I was happy to find a woven wood blind that was affordable and matched in my living room. I learned that they was going to have a big sale during Black Friday week so I waited for that sale before placing my order. For my two windows, each measuring 46.25" x 58.25", I was able to get my blinds delivered to my home for $250 all said and done. As you will see in the following pictures, the fit is PERFECT. I am happy with the purchase.
One thing I will say about woven wood blinds is that they do the opposite of what you would expect blinds to do. You can see in at night but not out and you can see out in the day but not in. There is the option to have these comed lined for privacy, however, it would have nearly doubled the price of my order so that was not an option for me.
