Painted Chevron Rug with Perfect Zig Zags

When it comes to décor, Elisha from Pneumatic Addict Furniture likes to keep things on the neutral side. However, she decided to shake things up in her living room with a chevron rug (just to make sure she wasn’t erring on the “old lady” side). Elisha found a $20 rug at Wal-mart that was perfect for her experiment. She taped off her chevron pattern and painted away. Using her technique, Elisha had only crisp, clean zig-zags and zero bleed!

I just love those chunky stripes!

I am simply loving my new painted curtains and am not the only one who has had success with this money-saving option. Eleni from Fields of Basil wanted cheerful curtains with a splash of color and found them, but of course they came at a steep price. Instead, Eleni stenciled her own. I love the pattern she created!

Painted Stripe Curtains

As I recently shared on Infarrantly Creative, I am changing things up in my family room after about ten years of the same color scheme. My first big undertaking was painting striped curtains. Considering color, pattern, price, and length, I always have trouble finding just the right curtains, so painting my own was the perfect option. I absolutely love how they came out and cannot believe the difference they make!
