The Painted Rug is finished!!

 
 
 
I finished the painted rug that I shared a couple of weeks ago and now have it in my creative space.
 
 
This is the area when I first got started. It is very small but will serve as a nice place to sew and craft.
 
 
 
After cleaning and painting my first order of business was to cover that awful floor and not spend too much doing it.
The upstairs office rug (old blue) was moved to the basement and had a date with a roller and paintbrush.
 
 
Rolling it black was the easy part...
Stenciling on the other hand was quite time consuming.
 
 
Looking at it finished now is very satisfying.
 
 
 
This space (corner) is difficult to get good pictures but hopefully you can see how well it fits the area I wanted to cover.
 
 
 
If you look you can see on the left of the shots that there is a countertop. It is a built in laminate top that will serve as a place to cut fabric and paint. It does not look the greatest but cleans up nicely. I will show it in another post once I have it decluttered and you can actually see the top of it...haha :)
 
 
I love how it turned out...and to think I was gonna pitch this rug into the dumpster at one time. So glad it was still hanging around here when I discovered you can paint rugs. Learning a new craft and saving money at the same time?
I LIKE THAT :)
Next time the ceiling is the portion of this project that will be highlighted. Thanks so much for coming by to visit today.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
Karen
