DIY Painted Rug


Do you have a room that needs a unique size rug?  Do you want a rug that incorporates the colors from your space perfectly?  To get that one of a kind rug you can make your own.  Well not “make” the rug but rather paint a rug.  In this room we wanted a rug that was not a standard size.  Rather than having a custom rug made we made a custom size rug by sewing three rugs together.  We chose to use three white 100% cotton flat woven rugs each measuring 6’ x  8’.
What You Need

Flat woven rug
Fabric paint or latex paint mixed with fabric medium
