Paint A Rug Party Week Two

Welcome to Week Two of Paint a Rug Party.  If you weren't here last week you should know that Linda, of My Crafty Home Life, organized some party goers for this rug painting partaaay.  Below are several photos showing my daughter's area upstairs.  The hallway that is screaming out for some floor decor is where the painted rug will go. 





Yes, here.  And below is the rug I'll be painting.  I mentioned Linda, the hostess/organizer of this shindig before.  She has saved the day for me here by custom sizing an IKEA rug.  I absolutely had to have white.  My daughter already has an IKEA white rug in her "hang out" room and I had wanted a runner just like it.  You know what they say about assuming.  I had assumed IKEA sold this in a runner and they do not.  You just cannot know how much I appreciate this!  I should receive the rug tomorrow.  Linda did a post showing how how she did it.  It's a fantastic tutorial that you can see here.



House Beautiful

My daughter would adore something like this.  With the painted horizontal stripes on the walls in her bedroom, stripes are out.  And she has chevron fabric, too.  So, enough hard lines.  Tie dye, or dip dye would work and look great with what's there already.  



But this looks more likely.  

Martha Stewart

Something like this looks sort of doable, too.  Please come back next week to see what happens!  And go see what the other guests have in the works!

I love the dip dye one, and that seems doable, with a large rubbermaid container (messy, but doable :-)...the tie die is cool but how would you accomplish that? Guess I'll have to tune in next week!

Lisa Mende said...
