The "paint a rug party"


Well it seems that Miss Linda has organized another blogger project.
This time the participants will paint a rug.
I am a DIYer from way back but painting rugs is new to me. I am pretty sure that I just signed up to ruin a perfectly good floor covering.


I am using the term "perfectly good" rather loosely. I have a seagrass rug that my daughter calls a "porcupine" and its has binding that is my least favorite color green.


I plan on painting the binding too. Everything else is still up in the air. I had an idea and bought the paint and fabric medium.


Then I changed my mind.
I might not even use these colors.
Also, I should dispell any notion that I am going to do a "painting" on this rug. It will be a design that is appropriate for a rug. If you do see my finished product as an abstract, you will know I used it to cover up a mistake.
Check out what the others are doing.

I love that your daughter calls the rug "the porcupine" sounds like my girl complaining about the scratchy wool! This will be fun....

Can't wait to see what you do. Although I think the "painting" idea is pretty cool.

I was curious whether you would do an abstract. I actually thought of trying an abstract myself and it would be unique - I did not find any abstract versions online. Can't wait to see what you do whatever it is.

Get out! I am really looking forward to an abstract rug. This will be great, and probably lead to a new line for you to sell.
