Flor (review/LIVE Giveaway TONIGHT!)

Photobucket

I don't like things to stay the same for long, you have no idea how many times we've rearranged our living room and bedroom around to make it look different, because we were tired of looking at the same thing. Well it used to be we could only rearrange the furniture, but with Flor, we can rearrange the FLOOR!!! Yes, you read that right, we can change the look of our floor. That's because Flor makes squares of carpet that you peice together to make you own unique look! Take this for instance, this is the design and color we got (this is what 1 square looks like....but the lines on the squares are some different sizes)....
Photobucket
Now, picture in your head the MANY different ways you can put together 12 squares (thats how many we have for a 5x7 rug).
Photobucket
This is that design, just a different color...this is one way you can put the squares together.
Photobucket
This is our color, and another way to put it together. Now I'm not going to show you every way there is...use your imagination! Jeff did, he LOVED putting this together, he would lay it out one way, and then figure out it didn't look right in the living room, so he changed the pattern, over and over until we were satisfied with the finished rug!

Now, you are probably wondering how these squares of tile stay together...well I did too. It's called FlorDots! They are like stickers that go on the corner of inside tiles, and edges of outside tiles to stick together
Photobucket
The FlorDots are SUPER sticky! And if you change your mind about your Flor pattern, you can change it (within a timely manner, after a certain amount of time the adhesive is stuck, and if pulled off wont stick again) If you have your Flor down for awhile, and then decide you want to change the pattern, you can go to Flor's site and buy more FlorDots so you can change it around! At $4.99 for 12 of them...you CAN'T BEAT THAT!

Now, my kiddos were not left out in this whole ordeal...they got the best rugs in the house now! Jeffery is my HUGE Cars freak, actually he loves anything that moves lol, but Cars is one of his all time favorites, so when I ran across the Cars Flor I was AMAZED! I HAD to get it for him!
Photobucket
That is the finished product in his room (ok, Flor is NOT designed to go ontop of carpet, but this carpet don't have any padding under it I don't think, so it isn't sliding around...Flor is meant to go on hard surfaces, it grips it better)
Photobucket
I don't know if you can see very well, but above Doc's hood there is 2 cars, he started playing with this as soon as we put it together, and of course he had to model with it!
Photobucket
This is a closeup of one of the squares, and to be honest with you, the picture does NOT do it justice!! These squares have AMAZING detail in them! I was in shock at how adorable they were!!!

Jaylin wasn't left out either! She's my princess, so she got Princesses (ok, both kids' room is done in what their Flor is, Jeffery has Cars curtains, and wall stickers and all that fun stuff, while Jaylin has the same in Princesses!) The Princess Flor is just as detailed as the Cars and I just LOVE it! It is bright pink and just adorable!!!
Photobucket
This is what the Princess Flor looks like (no this isnt in Jaylins room...I couldn't get a good picture because her room is so small)
Photobucket
This shows a little more detail of the tiles. Look how much detail is in them! It's like looking at a picture!

In celebration of my 24th birthday today, I am holding a LIVE Giveaway tonight @ 8pm EST!! I will post the rules before 8pm, and open comments at 8pm sharp! The winner of the giveaway will get a 5x7 Flor rug of their choice (there is 1 design that is excluded and I am trying to find that one out right now!)
