I painted the original version of this rug back in October for a friend who needed a bold and graphic (and affordable) rug for a trade show booth. As she was asking me if I knew where she could find such I thing, I looked down at the sisal rug we were standing on and piped “how about I paint this one?” Why not, right? I did my research, created an easy to use pattern (very important that it is easy) and gave it a go. The finished rug looked fantastic and after 4 months of use in her office space, it still looks just as great. So here is the video tutorial to make a painted DIY rug with a chevron pattern. . . Enjoy! ~ Lia
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:4’4″ x 6’5″or 5’5″ x 7’7″ rug (the Ikea Egeby sisal rug)
Prints of the chevron pattern (5 each of the 2)
