not cutting a rug. painting a rug.
so i bought a rug. it turns out solid color non-fancy rugs at the home depot are very affordable. not incredibly chic, and definitely off-gassing something horrific, but cheap. i had seen this tutorial, and figured a $10 rug might be wasted. but it also might turn out to be $10 worth of awesome. i also had some stencils from a waylaid wall-art idea. and always tons of paint.
i followed the instructions and vacuumed the shite out of the rug. then watered down my paint and using spouncers [best word ever] spounced that paint right on.
yes the paint is a little crunchy. yes i vacuum it borderline obessive. and yes it is softening a bit. no i dont completely regret it and yes, i will take marginally positive compliments on it. that is all.
