Blue Painted Chevron Rug

Chevron Painted Rug

Riva from Uno, Dos, Très Chic is not a fan of traditional baby motifs, so this chevron painted rug was the perfect addition to her son’s nursery. Riva created her chevron design but cutting over 200 rectangles from freezer paper. (How’s that for dedication?) I really like how Riva alternated the two slightly different shades of blue, as it adds a bit more visual interest. Most importantly, it looks like Riva’s little man likes his new stylin’ rug.

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!

Like Heather from Southern State of Mind you have probably found yourself wondering why outdoor furniture and accessories are so crazy expensive. Who wants to spend a ton on things that are going to sit outside and be exposed to the elements? Certainly not Heather! Instead, she spray painted a thrifted rug and got exactly the same look for a grand total of twenty bucks!

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!
