Stenciled Rug

I finally jumped on the bandwagon this summer and stenciled a rug for my patio. I love the graphic impact the design brings to the seating area. Even after all the stenciled rugs I’ve seen around, I was still blown away when I saw the rug created by Lydia from Pudel-Design for the reading nook in her bedroom. Lydia made her own stencil, then traced it onto the entire rug, and hand painted it. I can only imagine the tedium involved in this process, but Lydia’s results are simply astounding!

Lydia was inspired by the Tasksim Rug from West Elm.

  1. Omg….what a great rug. I am on a hunt now to find a great stencil! Thanks for posting this. I just stopped over to see Lydia!!! She has great stuff!

    • Did you see how Lydia created her own stencil from a design she found on the internet similar to her West Elm inspiration? Of course you can buy a ready-made stencil too, but I loved Lydia’s idea to get the exact design you want and save some money!

    I love the rug, but that chandelier is to die for.

    • Lydia made that too! If you click on the link above, you will find a link in Lydia’s rug tutorial that takes you to the tutorial for the chandelier. There are some great projects over at Lydia’s site! Enjoy! :)

    • I love your rug, Lydia, and am thrilled to be able to feature it! I know many will be inspired by it. Nice work! :)

  4. I am so in love with the idea of making my own rug, but Ikea no longer carries the rug that everyone has been using for this project. Does anyone know of a good alternative – inexpensive and the right quality? Thanks!

  5. What a gorgeously put together room! For all the DIY-ers this is an awesome tutorial, but I can’t resist telling you about our beautiful, 100% cotton & canvas rugs that are Made In Canada. At $69-$99 a pop, they’re cheap! Come & take a look :)
