We made a stencil out of wax paper and used latex paint to paint our rug.
We were actually quite shocked at how incredible it looks. There are no texture issues and the rug looks amazing. What do you think? What a way to save about $110.00. We can't remember what the can of paint cost, but figure about $20.00 for the whole project. It's not a high traffic area, so we think the durability will be fine.
