Earlier this week I shared some inspiration for my entry. This is one of my favorites:
I especially love that rug. I have always wanted to try out some of the painted rug tutorials I have seen on Pinterest & around the Blogosphere. So since I’m working on my entry, and love this photo of an old bench atop a bold-print rug… it seemed it was time to try the technique out.
And, boy, am I glad I did.
The results of this project make me so excited (I think of all the endless rug painting possibilities!!!) And it wasn’t too difficult to accomplish.
Here are some of the tutorials I used as a guide:
I didn’t follow any one tutorial exactly, and I made several mistakes, so maybe I should follow a tutorial next time 🙂
One my favorite things about this project is that I used a rug I already owned.
The backside of the rug is solid, so I decided to use it for my 1st painted rug project. I sketched out my design and then measured to find the center of the rug.
And one of the best parts? Now, it’s a double sided rug – for when I feel like switching things up. 🙂
