One morning I looked out at the rug at the bottom of our stairs and realized it was in sad shape. I think at one time it had some kind of tropical landscape on it, but there was so much dirt, there was no telling what it had been. I was about to chuck it in the trash, when I had an idea.
After hosing it off and laying it out to dry in the sun, I came back the next day and began to tape out a herringbone pattern. There was a teeny tiny bit of measuring involved, but not much.
I looked in our spray paint stash and alternated using some mint Krylon and some gold metallic.
I think if you looked around our gravel driveway, you'd find a plethora of colored rocks...
mint... gold... purple... blue... white... red... black...
Take off the tape, and oila!
All pau! Simple solution to what some would say is a silly problem.
After all, rugs are supposed to be dirty, right?
Well, not mine. I like them clean and pretty.
