I am a sucker for any type of 'Before & After'.
Makeovers, dental work, weight-loss, reupholstery, landscapes.. you name it.
You have a coffee table you made from a wagon wheel? Sign me up, I wanna see it!
So, I hope you don't mind me showing you one of mine.
I'm very happy with how it turned out, and I'm even happier with the money I saved by putting in a little extra effort.
Who needs a $500 rug when you can make one for $70!

Before:
Ikea Rug $40 (must be flat-woven to ensure the paint doesn't seep under the tape)


Latex paint, green Scotch tape, brush $30 (the green painter's tape sticks better than the blue)



During:
There is something very therapeutic about painting something you wouldn't normally paint!
I enjoyed every second of it. This rug only needed two coats, leaving me with half of a gallon.


After:




Pay no mind to the grumpy pug. She decided the rug felt better than cold tile and wouldn't get off.
