Reader Miggy was inspired by this LGN post and by Nick Olson's painted chevron rug. She picked up a $30 white flatweave rug from IKEA, similar to this one:
and got to work taping it up in a chevron pattern:
Then she used a dry brush technique and applied some regular latex paint in two different shades.
I love the effect of the dry brushing!
Miggy is using this rug in her daughter's nursery. Can you believe the total cost was $36 and about 3.5 hours of labor? I love it.
