Rugs and Hugs
Oct 5, 2011
Oh, IKEA, where would be be without you and your ridiculously affordable rugs that are so easy to paint? Nowhere worth going, that's for darn tootin'. Steph from Birdhouse Family wanted a bold geometric rug to enhance her craft room (the most sophisticated and stunning "craft room" I've ever seen. I don't know what the heck she is crafting up in here, but I'm guessing it doesn't involve pipe cleaners and macaroni).
Anyway, so she wanted a bold rug, and that's what she got, using a simple $39 IKEA 'Erslev' rug and leftover wall paint for a perfect match. Looks fantastic!
And look! Here's yet another geometric painted rug for your perusal and arousal. Same IKEA rug, totally different look. Holly from Adventures of an Almost 40 year old Intern gives the whole rundown on her blog and makes it sound easy! I'm seriously trying this.
And lastly, Kim from Of All the Fish in the Sea gave Mother Earth a hug by updating this doormat instead of tossing it in the garbage.
See, boring can be bodacious, and stained is salvageable! Thanks ladies!
