Soft & snuggly, ignore temp curtains and naked walls

I have been dreaming of a VERY snuggly soft rug under our new KING bed (see how we built bed frame for $26 and topped it w/ a mattress and new bedding for under $400 total here) but not willing to pay many-hundreds of dollars, I came across a solution and ‘how-to’ on another blog I like to read.

Anyone else enjoying any furry or faux ‘friends’ in your home? I’ve never really been into fur before but sure feels nice and our cats and baby seem to like it too!

P.S.-Fabric was $19/yd and I bought 2.5yds x 60″ wide (So, it was $50 which I consider to be quite a deal for a rug). We are keeping it in place with a 4×6 non-skid carpet pads and a little carpet tape on the outer edges. Could have bought a bigger carpet pad and cut it the same way though!
