I have a tiny living room (10 ft x 7.5 ft) but it does have one big blank wall that was screaming for something to jazz it up. Being a renter, I wanted to do something quick and easy to remove later, and ideally something that I could take with me when I move. Who would have thought that the solution would present itself in the form of a rug! This project is very simple and I'll outline the steps here and you can watch the entire living room transformation in the video.
I made a frame to fit the size of the rug (4' x 6') with inexpensive 1"x2" furring strips ($1 for 8 ft). I extended the vertical side pieces of the frame so they rest on the floor and act as legs.
