    Im so in Love with My Cowhide Rug!

    Im so in Love with My Cowhide Rug!

    These cowhide rugs come in a variety of colors,  sizes, and patterns, but one quality found in all of them is their warmth and sense of wholesomeness. Much like my childhood, they instantly make me feel like I am being brought back home, to the same place where I first came in contact and fell in love with nature.

    For example, the captivating caramel blend of brindle cowhides. The deep shades of brown which are ensured by its phenomenal quality and feel are some of which can only be put on display by grasping what it truly means to understand the elements of western culture and the embrace of Mother Nature behind it. By exploring the tastes of others; whether they are the opinions of those around the world, in our local community, or even our neighbors is how we nitpick what it is exactly that people find alluring about cowhide skins as a collective.

    Above all else, there is no environment that should not be ornamentally suitable, or unwelcoming of cow skins. Living rooms, porches, or even bathrooms! These graceful pelts of nature should be capable of shaping any environment into one that welcomes the soft-touch and beautiful visual appeal of a cowhide rug. That being said, none other than those at Rodeo understand what it truly means to harbor the prized aesthetic of the Westerner, and to cherish a sense of fine taste.

    Fun Cowhide Projects for Your Home

    Fun Cowhide Projects for Your Home

        Cowhide is all the rage these days, and why not? It's beautiful, fun, and adds a bit of Old-West chic to your home decor. While most folks incorporate cowhide in the form of rugs and throw pillows, there are endless clever ways to use cowhide in your home. All you need are a few scraps of cowhide leather, a few simple supplies that you probably have on hand, and a little free time to make them happen. Here, then, are three cowhide projects you can make to bring some western Wow! into your rooms.

    1.   Cowhide Coasters

    Cowhide coasters are a fun way to protect your fine furniture from unsightly rings. Find or draw a small cowhide rug template, or choose a shape like circles or squares for your coasters. Trace the template onto the back of your cowhide, and use sharp scissors to cut it out.  Glue the cowhide to a square of cork. When it's dry, use a sharp X-Acto knife to trim the cork so it's the same shape as the cowhide. Voila!

     

    1. Cowhide Light Switch Plates

    Covering your light switch plates in cowhide is a subtle way to add some quirky Western flair to your favorite room. Trace the light switch plate onto the back of the cowhide, and cut it out. Use an X-Acto knife or very sharp scissors to clip out the opening for the switch, and use a hole puncher to make holes for the screws. Hot glue the cover onto the plastic plate, let it cool and install it. 

     

    1. Transform an Old Dresser

    Use upholstery tacks to attach cowhide to the fronts of the drawers on a thrift-store dresser for a dramatic touch that'll have your friends talking about how clever you are behind your back. Carefully cut the cowhide to the right shape, and punch or cut holes where the drawer pulls will attach. Use glue and upholstery tacks to affix them into place on the drawers. 

      

    You don't have to limit your cowhide to coasters, switch plates, and dresser drawers, of course. Cowhide can be used in countless ways to "beef" up your home decor. Consider covering lamp shades, picture or mirror frames, your bed frame, a footstool, ottoman, or your dining chairs in cowhide. You can use it to make a table runner, a wall hanging, or a welcome mat. The possibilities are endless--all you need is some cowhide and your brilliant imagination to create all manner of eye-catching art pieces and accessories for your home.

    How to remove creases from your Cowhide Rug

    How to remove creases from your Cowhide Rug

    Customers always email us asking: " Hi, I received my cowhide rug, and it is beautiful! But how can I remove the creases?"

    The most common way is to lay your cowhide rug flat on the floor. With time, the creases will go away. Putting some heavy furniture or heavy books on the rug will also help. 

    Today we are going to share a little trick with you! 

    Here is what you will need:

    • A towel 
    • Water
    • Iron 

    Dampen the towel, but make sure it's not too wet to where it's dripping water. Put the wet towel on the back side of the cowhide. Cowhides does not like to be soaked in water - the water will damage the leather, so make sure that you DO NOT wet too much of the towel. 

    Place the towel on the back of the cowhide (the suede side), making sure it covers the creases you are going to remove.

    Now you are halfway there! Put the iron on low heat and gently iron over the towel. Make sure it's not on high heat, because it will damage the leather. 

    Congratulations! Now you know how to remove the creases on your cowhide rug! Lay your cowhide rug on the floor upside down (the hairy part should be down on the floor). When the rug is completely cool down, flip it over. Now your new cowhide rug is in perfect shape! 

    Be aware that we do not recommend the iron procedure unless it's absolutely necessary to remove the creases. If you do choose to proceed, DO NOT do it too often.

    Make sure that iron is set to low heat. Cowhide rugs are authentic leather - they should not be exposed to extreme heat. 

    Enjoy your new Rodeo Cowhide Rug!
