I need your help.
I know it is only Tuesday, but I have a major DIY project on my radar for the weekend.
Drum roll please.
I'm going to paint my living room rug.
Ok ok, I know it doesn't sound like that huge of a project. But we're talking about me, the girl who has no patience. And the decor perfectionist.
But it's just time for this project. Why? Due to the new addition into my household (ahem, my little goldendoodle Camp), I figured it wasn't quite time to invest in a new rug of choice. So I threw this old Pottery Barn rug of my mom's down thinking it would do until the pup grew up a little and I could move a more decor-friendly one in.
like this, with white and dove gray stripes. Or,
this, with the original linen color and perhaps navy or again, gray (this blogger also has a great tutorial. Follow the link). Or lastly,
geometric print, in exactly the colors seen here.
Right now, I am leaning towards the stripe, because quite frankly, it seems the simplest. However, I have chevron pillows on my couch, so I'm worried it will be a little too much zig for my zag if you follow. I know this project is going to take a significant amount of time, and while it isn't high in price, I'm still hoping to replace it with this rug from West Elm soon.
(and is the chevron an issue here)? Which is your favorite, or do you have a different idea all around? I'd adore your feedback, so let your opinions flow to help me decide!
