Farmhouse Style Rugs Under $150
I love farmhouse style rugs, all tattered looking and gorgeous. What I do not love, is how expensive area rugs can be. I found 7 8×10 area rugs, all with a vintage, distressed, rustic, farmhouse, boho vibe… all under $150.
We have a lot of little kids running all willy nilly with juices, crackers, candies, markers, slime, dirt, ketchup, chocolate, milk, and Lord knows what else. I cannot be having them trashing and destroying rugs. That’s the main reason why we never upgraded our rugs when we built this house – we knew they’d get destroyed.
And… they have.
The living room rug has a blue sharpie line drawing, a big blue stain from a renegade freezie pop that was left to die a slow death, toothpaste, ketchup, and a LOT of small random stains that I don’t recall cleaning up.

I steam clean the main carpet in our house at least 3 times a month and while we do use an amazing carpet spray (which also is used in the laundry too), the carpet itself is just so basic-level and worn, it’s beyond. We shall upgrade the carpets in the second floor with a better quality carpet, but the first floor shall have none.
Our grand plans are to remove the carpet in the living room, dining room (why there is wall-to-wall carpeting in dining rooms is beyond my comprehension on so many levels), and the play room, and do some type of wood or wood-look flooring. We will keep the carpet on the stairs, hallway, and bedrooms upstairs, but will upgrade that to a nicer-grade option way, way, way down the road. Like when they can brush their teeth without toting the toothpaste around the house.
I have been thinking about getting a giant area rug for the living room in the mean time, to help break up the sharpie stains and beige-ness. Which, is ironic because all the rugs I keep gravitating toward… are in the realm of beige. Go figure.

Pin this for later:
I think all these rugs have enough pattern that any grime would be camouflaged. Of course, sharpie cannot be disguised.
My favorite is #6!
Happy Fast Fix Friday! I’m off to mix up a batch of Sarah’s famous facial serum. 🙂
Sharpies are banned in this house until further notice!
Gosh, I would take any one of these gorgeous rugs!!! I seriously don’t know which one I like best! And the price point can’t be beaten!! Most rugs I see are a ridiculous amount of dollars. So, so many dollars. Thank you for saving us a ton of work by sourcing these for us!
Here’s to gorgeous floor covering options!
For $150, I feel like whenever they spilled something on it, I wouldn’t weep. Lol
You can remove sharpies with rubbing alcohol
I would like to order one of these but I’m super picky when it comes to matching, we are in the process of renovating our new house, all walls are Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray and trim is Alabaster….which one would you suggest?
Hi Sheila! I would say #1 or 7 would go well with those colors, because they’re mostly cooler white and grey tones, while the others are warmer beige and even some tint of blue. What kind of flooring do you have?
