Chevron Painted Rug Tutorial

Chevron stripes are really hot in interior design right now. Check out this awesome DIY tutorial on how to update your décor with a DIY chevron rug!

Here's how I transformed my rug from boring, to

SPRING-TACULAR!

First I taped off the fabric edges, like so, because I wanted to leave those their natural color.

Then I started paintin' away, with some plain ol' Olympic Semi-gloss latex paint.

This process took me a while.

Like about an hour and a half!

The texture of the carpet was a BUGGER to get through, with the paint.  And even required a second coat, to get the coverage that I was looking for.

The reason I went with this rug, was because of it's durability and texture.  I love how beachy it looked.
