Painted Rug

Turn ordinary rug into a stylish, amazing one!
I equipped my little apartment some time ago. I wrote about looking for lightning. Finally, I found a few inspiring idea. Same was with searching for carpet and rugs. They are too expensive, I can’t afford for buying new ones. No chance. Luckily, every day I come across a lot of creative ideas so I can choose something suitable for me. I can make a decision...I hesitate among creating: Pompom Rug, Hula-Hop T-shirt one and Recycled Rag Rug.

Katie, who’s the owner of the Upcycled Treasure, shows brilliant way of painting rug. You can use old rug, buy secondhand one. Spots, imperfections are not important cause you can paint them over. The pattern that Katie shows is adorable, I fall in love with it. I immediately start asking friend, looking in thrift shops for one color rug or carpet to turn it into this handicraft masterpiece.
