Paint A Rug Party

Before I explain, I will give you a partial tour of my daughter's area in our house.  A complete tour is not possible as she is a 14 year old who is not interested in keeping things camera ready.  The photo above is her bedroom.  It's not completely finished, but we're almost there.

This is in her "hang out room."

From the door of her bedroom,

and looking toward her bedroom from the hall.

This is the guest bathroom that is accessed from the hall.

This is the one part of my daughter's bathroom that I can photograph.  The vanity/sink room has become a bit cluttered with nail polish and hair accessories rendering it unworthy of your viewing.

So, now to the fun rug party part.  Of course, Linda, of My Crafty Home Life is involved.  She's gotten together some blogging friends who want to paint a rug.  This will be very interesting as I do not usually DIY.  I'm going to give it a try and just have fun with it.  If it's not perfect, it's for a 14 year old who doesn't notice details anyway!  

I have two possible rug choices for painting.  There's a rug in the hang out room that can be painted, but I really want to do one in the hallway between that room and the bedroom.  I've looked and looked for a white flat weave rug like the IKEA rug in the hang out room and can't find it in a runner size.  Any ideas of where I can find that?  If it can't be located in a couple of days, I will paint the existing rug.  I hope you'll come back next Thursday to see more.  By then I'll know which rug I'll paint and how I'll paint it.  I'll share the plan next week.  Be sure to visit all the rug painting party guests!

Good luck with yours. Your daughter's room is neater than my my 15 year-old's, and prettier.

Maybe Pier1? They usually have a lot of solid color rugs. I love the striped tile in her shower! Can't wait to see what you do. :)

Your daughte's room looks more camera ready than my daughters!!! Did you try Crate & Barrel or Shades of Light for a rug? This will be fun...!

Jennifer, what a stunning room your daughter has! I know the challenges of a teens room, but you've got these pictures if you need a respite! Love the idea of a runner in the hall, or paint a border on that white rug? You will come up with something spectacular! I love your bathroom striped tile!!!!!! fantastic.

I am doing a runner too! Love the colors in these rooms - can't wait to see what you do. It is probably easier to find a sisal runner than a white flat weave.

I am NOT showing this to my daughter. She will want every part of your daughter's room. Her room is so lovely. I am looking forward to seeing this rug you create.

Good luck with finding the runner, I agree that would look fab in the hall. You can do it!!!

Sam @ The Junk House said...

Your daughter's room is amazing! It looks better than my room - haha! Anyway, I can't wait to hear about the plan and see the finished rug.

Your daughter's room is very pretty. I am currently doing my son's bedroom and his bedroom have a lot of common with your daughter's bedroom. Stripes, check! White walls, check! White furniture, check! Blue chevron pillow, check! Art on the striped wall, check! Great minds?

Looking forward to see your rug progress next week!

Super pretty blues. this is so fun. Good luck!!!

I have had the same inability to find a runner size rug to paint! I have wanted to paint a rug for the foyer but can't find the runner size. I was thinking of trimming the Ikea Erslev rug, but that will involve cutting the rug to size and then sewing the edges by hand, ugh.

Better you than me girl :) I know from experience that Linda can be pretty persuasive hee haw! I really can not wait to see what everyone comes up with!
