*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Bethany Winkler! Enjoy your new Flor!

In my last post, you got a sneak peek of the new rug in the boys’ bedroom. Previously, I bought an inexpensive cotton flat weave from IKEA to give the kids a soft place to play. I knew when I bought it that it wasn’t the rug. {But that’s okay. I was thinking ahead and planned to use it elsewhere once I found the right rug for the boys’ room.}

It was too light to survive in a boys’ bedroom {hello, dirt} and the size was all wrong. It was roughly 6’x8′ but I needed it about 3′ longer on the longest side to optimize play space. That meant I was looking for a 6’x11′ rug. Basically, a fat runner. If you’ve ever done any rug shopping, you know that 6’x11′ is not anywhere close to a standard rug size. I would find rugs long enough but they were too wide. {Eventually, two desks are going in on the right wall shown above so I didn’t want a rug that would extend into the desk area.} When I found rugs narrow enough, they were too short to run the length of the room. That’s when I realized I was wasting my time searching for the perfectly sized rug. The only way I was going to get a ~6’x11′ rug was to have one custom made or make one myself.

I went as far as to special order a custom cut rug via Home Depot. But when it arrived {six weeks later!} it was damaged and hadn’t even been cut to the size I specified. I had such a horrible experience that I swore off the whole custom cut rug idea. {In Home Depot’s defense, they hire out for the custom cutting of rugs and I did get a full refund because the product I received wasn’t what had been ordered – wrong size & damaged. Still, it was not a pleasant experience.}

That’s when I looked to Flor. Well, now. Here was a huge selection of rug tiles that I could position any way I wanted to nearly any size my house-lovin’ heart desired. Bingo. After I did the math, I discovered that if I made a rug 4 tiles wide and 7 tiles long it would produce a ~6’6″x11’6″ rug. Faaaantastic.

I chose 30 tiles of the sweater weather in grey. It has a cable knit texture I love in a color that will hide just about anything my boys can throw, drop, squish, mark or smear on it. For particularly awful messes, I can remove the affected tiles, wash them off in the sink or outside then put them back. Like nothing ever happened. Shhhhhhh. If one the tiles is ever beyond washing or repairing, I have two replacement tiles to use.

I was leery of the ‘heavy traffic’ description, afraid that the tiles would feel like the abrasive indoor-outdoor carpeting from the 70’s. But they don’t feel that way at all. They feel more like yarn than carpet or wool.

{Nevermind the sliver of sunlight blowing out the middle of the rug.}

The other great thing is that the rug has a super low profile. I can easily pull out the trundle bed of the bunk onto the rug without having to move anything first. The tile backs are slip-resistant so the rug doesn’t shift or wrinkle when the trundle rolls onto them. No need for a rug pad.

Putting the rug together was a cinch.

I laid out my 28 tiles in the rectangular shape I wanted, using the quarter-turn installation. Then we lived with them like that – floating freely – for a week or so to make sure it was the rug. It was! The only thing left to do was adhere the tiles to each other.

The tiles came with a slew of stickers.

At the intersection of four tiles, I placed one sticker – sticky side up – underneath and lined up the seams of the tiles with the guide lines on the sticker. {Picture the sticker above laying under the tiles.}

At the intersection of two end tiles, I placed one sticker – sticky side up – underneath the seam and lined up the seam with the guide lines on the sticker. {Picture the sticker above laying under the top tile as well.} I just went row by row, sticking the tiles together until they were all one big rug. It took me a total of 20 minutes.

This is the view from the top bunk. You can better see the size of the rug in relation to the room. It’s perfect.

I’m Flor’s newest fan. For several reasons:

*The tiles can be made into rugs of hard-to-come-by shapes and sizes.

*The low profile makes it ideal near moving doors, desk chairs and trundle beds.

*The slip-resistant backing makes a rug pad unnecessary.

*Tiles can be removed and replaced easily for cleaning.

*Tile facing is made from 100% recycled fibers.

I would highly recommend Flor for your floor-covering needs. To help you out, Flor is graciously sponsoring this week’s giveaway! See entry details below.

PRIZE: 20 Flor tiles of your choice!! {This will make a ~5’x8′ rug. You may purchase additional tiles for a larger rug.}

RULES: You must be at least 18 years old and have a U.S. shipping address {no P.O. boxes please} to enter. One entry per email address.

TO ENTER: ‘Like’ Flor on facebook then come back here and leave a comment on this post proclaiming “FLOR ME!”

DEADLINE: Enter before noon on Friday, October 19th. One random winner will be announced that same day.

WHILE YOU’RE AT IT: Since we’re talking custom-sized rugs…what’s your favorite custom item in your home? Maybe you have custom built kitchen cabinets or commissioned artwork that was created just for you. I’ll go first. We had an engineered ridge beam custom built for the great room. It allowed us to vault the once 8′ ceilings to >12′. It’s definitely a custom touch that goes a long way in making our kitchen and family room feel bigger and brighter. We’d do it over again in a heartbeat.

BUT, WAIT!, THERE’S MORE: Ever wonder what happened to the IKEA rug I took out of the boys’ room? Check back tomorrow to see where it ended up.

My husband built me a desk about 13 years ago that has lived in many different spaces/incarnations. It’s been L-shaped with the top resting on old metal bins once used to hold yarn at a factory and now it’s been modified to be a long and lean surface atop a couple of old wood and metal filing cabinets from the Pottery Barn. I have always loved it and felt so lucky to have a handy hubby who knows I need a desk where I can spread out!
We love FLOR products and would be thrilled to win! Thanks for the great prize opportunity!

we built our house a year ago, after saving every penny for more than two years so that we could “do it right.” the whole house is custom … it’s the farmhouse i wanted, and the modern home my husband wanted/needed. i love everything in my house, but my favorite custom item is the stairway. i’ve wanted a beautiful staircase my entire life, and when we built i made it abundantly clear that the stairs were a non-negotiable: wood treads, white banister and spindles, everything square and simple. i can see my daughter walking down it on prom night, my son climbing up it when he returns home from college. it looks amazing with garland at christmas. it’s perfect.

Although not custom, I have a gorgeous ’70s waterbed frame in near-mint condition. It’s one of the high pedestal one with drawers underneath and lots of pretty carvings on it. The coolest thing is that it has a couple of secret panels that pop open for hidden stuff! So awesome.

Well, I guess I also have a cute little double desk I share with my husband that we built out of an old closet door and legs from Lowes. It’s pretty adorbs and it gets the job done!

Everything in my house is custom…we are gutting and renovating a 100 year old home ourselves so we’ve done everything from putting beams in to building a kitchen from scratch. I recently recovered a chair in black and white houndstooth so that would have to be my current fave!

Love these! I love how it looks in your boys’ room.

My favorite custom piece is the headboard my husband made out of an old solid wood paneled door from the ReStore.
My husband also came upon an old, old farm that was being dismantled piece by piece and we were able to rescue some barn doors, paneling and some other assorted wood. We can’t wait to find the time to create some more custom features for our home. Love rustic, reclaimed wood paired with some industrial/modern touches!

I actually happened across some Interface/Flor at a St. Vincent de Paul last year and it is currently the only rug we have in the house (http://livinganalog.com/2011/10/12/flor-ed/). Love that stuff — I’ve had to take out a few squares and hose them down due to dog accidents but they clean up great. They should be able to survive your boys just fine!

I have a few peices of custom art done by my husband. I love them more than anything! He recently forbid me fro buying any more area rugs (even though I NEED one more) so I could sure use a free one!

So far we don’t really have anything custom in our house. We moved into a fixer-upper a few years ago but then my husband lost his job and decided to go back to school, so we haven’t had much money to do the fixing up. He just graduated & got a job though, so I’m really excited to actually start working on the house, starting with our bedroom. A new Flor rug would be awesome in there!

After your initial post, I immediately went online and requested one of their free catalogs to browse. I would love to do this in our Master bedroom with a custom area rug surrounding the perimeter of the bed but not wasting money by having the rug big enough to go underneath bed.

We have a large great room in our home, with room for a huge dining table. We had an 11×3.5 custom live-edge table built for our room. We did it online — we live in Madison Wis and ordered it from the Hardwood Mall in Pennsylvania. It’s a showstopper – everyone loves it. It’s elegant enough for a nice dinner party but inviting enough to accommodate homework projects. The size is crazy though, and I’ve actually been contemplating Flor tiles to create the correct-size rug underneath. Thanks for the idea!

16.October.2012

FLOR ME! My favorite custom item would have to be my two x benches. I found faux leather x benches with chrome legs for around $60 each at Ross and recovered them in an orange and white Trina Turk fabric. They are 100% me!

Desperately needed for living room. We live in the country and our main door opens right into the living room. When we pulled-up the brown shag (in 1996!), we found pine flooring with a linoleum “rug” asphalted down to the boards in the room’s center. We trimmed in a carpet remnant and that worked for a while (with the semi-annual carpet machine rental). All hope for the carpet is exhausted.
Flor option sounds perfect. I’ve even spent time looking at that same style as you used in the boys room.

16.October.2012

FLOR ME! We live in townhouse style condo so it seems as though EVERYTHING looks the same around us. We are slowly making it our own on the inside but my favorite custom piece/s are our bookshelves. My husband was an English Lit major in college and his dad (a woodworker) built us 10 custom bookshelves as his graduation present – along with the Oxford English Dictionary to fill one of the shelves (it’s 20 volumes – whoa!) But I love the FLOR carpet tiles – I was thinking they would be great in our unfinished basement to serve as a softer play area for our girls. We currently have a bunch of rugs just pieced together and while it is functional, it is just plain ugly =).

This could be the perfect solution for my odd-sized dining room. I’ve been searching for a rug for over a year!

Our kitchen island is custom made and I LOVE it! The cabinets were individually made to match the original, awesome 1969 cabinets in the kitchen. This allowed us to change the layout, and the modern touches we needed, like a breakfast bar, trash pullouts, and deep drawers for pots and pans.

reply )

FLOR ME!

I LOVE Flor! My husband and I went to the Flor store in Soho to see all the tiles in person and play around with configurations. We settled on a stripe with the “In the Mix” and the “All Square” in purple. It’s actually probably my favorite custom piece in our house…and it just leaves me wanting more!!

I love Flor tiles. I purchased them years ago when I couldn’t find an area rug that I liked. I even cut them to make carpet stair treads for the steps leading into my basement. They are fantastic and really do hold up well. Easy to vacuum and clean so you can’t beat that! Since I didn’t get to keep those I would love to have some new ones for my new house (moving in next week!)

the closest thing we have to “custom” right now is the “love is sweet” sign we used at our wedding that’s now hanging in our living room. my mom painted it for us on old barnwood from my grandfather’s farm, and we love it!

Not so much custom, but just after we were married we went to an art fair and bought a painting that the artist signed to us. It’s over the fireplace and I love it, seven years later.

I have been wanting a Flor Rug for years – just hasnt been in the budget – for what i want, anyway…
My favorite custom item, which is a new addition, is the dining room table we had custom made by an amish furniture store.
The wood is such high quality, that it is difficult to scratch/dent, and extends to seat 10 – which is awesome for Christmases.

There is not much in my house that I like right now. We’re about to start our own renovation, but we just put a deposit down on a custom accordion-style patio door that will allow us to have a 10′ wide opening when we finally get it installed. Can’t wait for that!

16.October.2012

FLOR ME!

We really don’t have much custom other than the headboard we are making and the huge Flor runner in our kitchen. I’m dying to replace our rug in the living room with a Flor rug. DYING!

And a tip – you dont always have to connect all the tiles. Like in our kitchen we have a 2 tile by 6 tile runner. There is no way we could remove that if it was all connect to sweep and mop under and around. So we made it into three manageable sections or 2×2 tiles. It stays in place really well too!

I’m another one sans custom home elements. Oh wait! Here’s something… We needed house numbers for our mailbox, and rather than settle for the typical off-the-shelf options I cut some myself using a Silhouette die cut machine and vinyl. I’m a graphic designer, so being able to choose the perfect typeface and align everything just so was right up my alley. And now I get a small thrill every time I pull in the driveway.

16.October.2012

FLOR ME! I’m a huge fan of Flor – we used their carpet tiles in our old house – dining room and master bedroom. My only complaint is that back when we bought them, the stickers were 2-sided, meaning they stuck to the tiles AND the actual floor. Getting the goo off 5 years later was not much fun. I’m glad to hear they’ve changed – and would love some for our new house! As for custom jobs, we just moved in 2 months ago so we haven’t customized much, but it appears our 1954 original kitchen cabinets were a custom job – they even list the homeowner’s name on the bottom of some of the drawers! :D

As for my favorite custom thing, I would have to say the cabinet doors I created for my studio take the cake. I’ve just never had anything custom made for our house yet, so I’ll do a little self promoting.

Flor Me,
Dana, glad to see that you have been converted.
Flor opened a store last month in Portland and I went to their grand opening hoping I could get you some sort of discount code for your rug needs, look like you got it taken care of. Now you have their catalog to look forward to, they come often and are filled with inspiring installations.
The plus side of using Flor besides the super easy installation is that if one gets spilled on, you pull it up, scrub it down, hang it to dry and re install in a day or so.
I have done this several times with different tiles that I have.

I don’t have anything customized in our home, but if I could choose something it would have to be a customized kitchen because I love baking and cooking! I’ve always heard that the kitchen is the center of a home–I believe that it is because of what’s in the kitchen–FOOD!

We don’t have it yet – but my husband is planning to build a custom wall of cabinets in the nursery, to add extra storage.

And oh, could we use the Flor tiles – I need to make a custom runner for our upstairs hallway, which is looooooong and a little wider than a normal runner size…

We don’t have anything custom in our house unless you count the things my husband has made. In that case, I’d probably pick the risers he made for the washer and dryer.

My favorite custom item right now is actually a Christmas present for my brother. I commissioned a sculpture made out of spark plugs of 2 scuba divers. My brother is a mechanic and he loves to scuba. I can’t wait to give it to him. Until then, I get to enjoy the piece of art!

I don’t know that I have anything (such as furniture, cabinets, etc) that is custom, but I’m ridiculously proud of the striped walls I hand painted in our entryway (such a statement), the black painted powder room, and the in process walls of shelves for our loft area… I could go on and on really, but the point is it’s custom to us, so personal and so our style. You guys have done an incredible job on your home, I LOVE living vicariously through you and long for the day I get to say that we’ve taken something standard and expected and made it totally us :-)

My favorite ‘custom’ piece is a super-sized piece of art work given to my by my in-laws on the occasion of my first child’s birth. My best friend, a children’s book illustrator, used a ‘wet crayon spray’ to create a canvas and my father-in-law refinished an antique frame. I love that so many special people in my life gave me a hand-crafted, thoughtful gift. I shall always cherish it.

It’s been so sturdy and neutral that we used it for our second and now it’s in his room and he is seven! He has trucks and planes on it it. Sometimes I just stare at it and think that both my babies were once laying on the top of it as newborns. It’s the once piece of furniture I’m actually attached to.

My son’s big boy room needs a rug!

reply )

16.October.2012

FLOR ME! Our living room is long but our fireplace cuts diagonally across one corner. This makes furniture and rug placement tough, especially when trying to make the zones still feel connected. An easy way to make a one-of-a-kind sized rug is just what we need!

16.October.2012

FLOR ME! We just moved into our first house and this would be a huge help in making it more “ours.”
Love the blog!

16.October.2012

FLOR ME! I have a TV stand that I made out of a buffet, a bunch of paint and a stencil. It has tons of storage, and fits perfectly into the room. I am so glad we refinished it the way we wanted it.

Flor Me,

FLOR ME pleeeeease! I’m in need of flor rug in my dining room. It’s just like your room, it’s long and narrow. I own an old farm house. We don’t really have anything custom right now but we’re in the process of reno so I’m looking into some custom cabinetry.

FLOR Me! Custom draperies are my favorite custom pieces in my house, along with upholstery. I’d love to put my FLOR tiles in my galley kitchen!

FLOR ME! Ahh…I don’t think I have anything custom in my apartment. Unless you count the things I’ve refinished myself I suppose! Way proud of those things!

I built a custom table. It’s far from perfect but built with my two hands.

reply )

17.October.2012

FLOR ME! I finally finished our kitchen table – a $10 sixties, mid century, walnut legged, melamine topped find. Someone had spray painted the underside brown, and the top was stained, but with some bleach for the top, stain for the legs and much needed coat of turquoise paint for a pop of colour on the underside, it’s all done! Now all it needs is a rug underneath…

I have a FLOR rug in our living room and LOVE it. Question for you-where in the world are you hiding all the toys?! I am impressed with how tidy everything is. We have a tiny house with 2 kids and no playroom and little storage. Toys seems to be part of our decor lately…I rarely see toys in your pictures of your home, so curious how/where they are all stored away! And, by the way, I love love love seeing the before and after pics. You guys have done an amazing job!

replied on October 17th, 2012

Our boys don’t have all that many toys. I edit and only keep what they love to play with. Their toys are in their closet along with their books. They have about four times more books than toys. Honestly, their favorite toy right now is their baby sister!

reply )

17.October.2012

FLOR ME! I absolutely love your blog! It is my new favorite! The rug looks great. I have been searching for rugs for my kid’s rooms for a while. Winning the tiles would be great! Thanks a lot! Best of luck with everthiung you do.

FLOR ME! I liked FLOR on FB, and would LOVE to try out these custom rug tiles!

My favorite custom made item in my home is a painting my daughter did. I have had it hanging in our dining room until we moved, and now I need to find a new home for it. I just don’t think it will work in our dining room anymore…maybe in our master…

reply )

17.October.2012

FLOR ME! I would have to say my fave custom pieces are the benches we built to fill an awkward corner in our house. Thick foam seats, lots of pillows, and cubbies for storage. It’s a great place to relax!

I guess I don’t necessarily have any one custom item in my home. I have a piece of furniture that was my great grandmothers that was absolutely hideous and I was able to paint it and make it look fantastic, yet it still means a great deal to me because it was my Great Grandmothers!

Flor me!! Love these. My favorite custom thing in our home is the kitchen counter I’m sitting at. Our kitchen had a small island sitting in it when we moved in. Last year when we renovated our kitchen my husband and I planned and built a custom kitchen peninsula. Complete with beverage fridge, a two door cabinet and six drawers. HEAVEN! The kitchen design guy at the local home improvement store said “A peninsula is never preferable to an island.” He was flat out WRONG!!

We’ve got a 1923 spanish bungalow that has been remodeled…but space is still at a premium and every little nook and crannie is used. There is a floor to ceiling 6 in. space on the right side of our fridge that is the majority of the pantry space. There are two tall drawers that pull out and are just wide enough to fit the Oxo containers where I keep dry goods (flours, sugar, canned goods, granola bars, etc.

This would be the first custom item in our condo, unless you call repainted furniture custom – maybe, sorta! Funny enough, the Sweater Weather pattern from Flor is exactly what I’ve been looking at for our living room, but in brown. It looks fantastic in your boys’ room!

My fiance has been building his own furniture for most of his teens and 20’s and when we moved in together a couple years ago, he made me a desk for all of my crafting. It’s not the most advanced design he’s made, but it makes me feel special that he made it for me!

I couldn’t find bedding that I liked for my kids’ shared bedroom, so I ordered some fabric, crossed my fingers, and made it myself. To my surprise, it was really easy, and it makes me so happy to go in there and see the toddler bed and crib bedding and know that I made that all myself. Plus, it saved me a ton of $.

I think my favourite customized item in our home is the ottoman that I designed, my dad built and together we upholstered with pearlised white vinyl that has a cool texture (read wipeable). While I would change the proportions if we were doing it today – it is a bit mammoth – it is amazing both as storage, a coffee table and a place for kids to play and not worry about hurting themselves. I just wish we hadn’t discovered the one thing that doesn’t wipe off is ballpoint pen…

I have so many favorite custom items in my home – the “artwork” I’ve created for our kitchen and living room using pallets I’ve torn apart and repurposed, the floor to ceiling “armoire/built-in’s” that we built for our master bedroom…I could go on and on! I really should stop customizing stuff around here – I’ll miss it all when we move!

reply )

17.October.2012

Flor Me!!! I think the only custom Item (and it really isn’t custom for us) is a family heirloom gun cabinet that has been in my boyfriend’s family for generations that his Great-Grandpa built. So it was custom back in the day right? OH!!! That’s a big fat lie. We have 2 custom fireplaces in our house. They were there when we moved in but they are both totally awesome. 1 is red brick and elegant looking and the other is made with field stones and is very rustic looking. I love it.

I’m a newbie to your blog. I just discovered you yesterday while googling reviews for an Ikea sink…and so happy I found you! And what a great day I did, as it’s the day to enter a giveaway! Wooohooo!

FLOR ME….please!

Favorite custom item is easily my engagement ring. My dear husband took me to S Africa a couple of months after we got engaged to pick out the diamond from the source & then let me design it. The process took so long that we didn’t actually get the ring until the week before our wedding. So for the majority of our engagement I ended up wearing an antelope horn ring that I bought during our safari in the Kruger…people who didn’t know the story thought my husband was crazy for giving me a horn ring until they realized a proper ring was forthcoming.

Flor me! Many things.. First our custom-designed BoConcept sofa. Awesome. Our next thing will be the dinnerware set my friend is making for us, but the most special thing so far is the painting we commissioned my sister to make. It was after my husband survived a dissected aorta (which is what killed John Ritter) and underwent major heart surgery to repair his heart, and now has a titanium valve. You can hear it tick sometimes and so we had her make a painting of an anatomical heart with wires and currents and zombies and craziness all wrapped around a labyrinth that you can follow. It was to remind us that home really is where the heart is.

FLOR ME!! I bought a rug for our son’s room and the size just isn’t right. What would be right are the exact same FLOR tiles you put in the boy’s room. Oh custom…I wish I could afford more of thee.

It has been almost 2 years since we moved into an unfinished house. And by unfinished, I mean we had heat and electricity in one room and no finished flooring. I also had a 2 month old son! Lots of custom work by my hubby and another son later, and we’re getting there;) My favorite is probably our master bathroom but hubby is currently working on some cabinetry for the laundry / main floor bathroom, which may quickly become my favorite!

My favorite custom element in my house is probably the whole master bathroom. Either that or all of the energy-efficiency and water-saving features that we have incorporated.

FLOR ME! 3/4 of my house is custom designed and built by my husband and myself, and my favorite part is my daughters room. It’s large, modern and she has great clerestory windows which make it a cheery room even on rainy days.

“FLOR ME!”

I just moved into my husband’s house (we were married last month) so we don’t have a lot of custom stuff there just yet. However, from my house that we are selling (closing next Friday!) I would choose my curtains I tweaked for my family room. They were from Pier 1 and a good color, but not long enough. I have a dog, so puddling them in a longer size wasn’t an option because they would stay furry. I added a red band of fabric at the bottom to make them hang right to the floor with Stitch Witchery and they ended up looking great!

FLOR ME! My old house came with a stable of original redwood doors. Using one, my husband created a special desk and allows us to enjoy the home’s history in a different way.

My 1945 cottage has a custom staircase with built ins installed by the architect who lived there before. It’s tiny, but feels like part of a ship with the amazing woodwork and lighting!

I’m looking around my house for something custom and I haven’t come up with anything yet… This is our first house so there is time!

The only custom things in my home are things that I have made or modified – my favorite being my mid-century console table with dip-dyed legs! <3

We are redoing our house, it is taking forever. So everything is “cindy” custom. I just can not have the normal- maybe that is why it is taking sooooo long. I love Flor products.

We’re about to tackle several custom projects for a new home we’re buying – and they’re all favorites in my mind! Now, to make it happen… :)

18.October.2012

FLOR ME! All the art in my house (with the exception of, I think, two pieces that I bought to “match” the rooms) are photographs I’ve taken or paintings done by friends. It makes me happy to see them and know that they are more than just beautiful. :)

We just moved into our first home, so does custom copper plumbing count? We had to replace our galvanized plumbing right away so we could have shower pressure.

FLOR ME! Last year we installed a gas fireplace in our living room, and it has been amaaazing. We live on the coast, and more often than not, our mornings are foggy. How sweet it’s been to curl up on the couch with a cup of coffee, in front of our clean and maintenance-free gas fireplace!

FLOR ME! Please! We have a sweet customized dresser that acts as a footboard (instead of a headboard in our bedroom. We pulled it off by re-doing a dresser and dressing up the back of it with v-mach and painting it white. It looks pretty custom. I’d love to build a custom rug for our living room where I struggle with our recently purchased sisal rug- it is too skinny and though I love the texture it doesn’t add anything to the room. Help!

reply )

19.October.2012

FLOR ME! I have several pieces that have been customized by me, to fit our specific needs or to fit our style. For instance, I bought an old brown wooden dresser and sanded, painted it (bright teal), added new drawer pulls and hardware to update it and make it perfect for my black dining room. I love it now. I didn’t love it as much when I bought it, but could see the potential. : )
