Happy Friday! I am so excited to share today’s post. Not only is it a home decor project (my favorite kind), but we shot a video tutorial as well. Yes, a video! To give you a little background this project has been on my “post hot list” for a few months now. I painted the original version of this rug back in October for a friend who needed a bold and graphic (and affordable) rug for a trade show booth. As she was asking me if I knew where she could find such I thing, I looked down at the sisal rug we were standing on and piped “how about I paint this one?” Why not, right? I did my research, created an easy to use pattern (very important that it is easy) and gave it a go. The finished rug looked fantastic and after 4 months of use in her office space, it still looks as great. Here is the tutorial. . .
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:4’4″ x 6’5″ (the Ikea Egeby sisal rug)
Prints of the chevron pattern (5 each of the 2)
1″ and 2″ painters tape
Mini paint roller and tray
Satin enamel paint in color of your choice (1 quart)
Easy, right? Just print the template below and give it a go! And of course if you do, I would love to see your photos and hear your feedback. Have a great weekend! ~ Lia
