A Painted Rug: 2

 I painted another rug!

The first time I painted a much smaller rug and that was in March 2011. You can see that post


. I still get many page visits to that today. 

Since I'm redecorating the dining room and it has its original carpet and new floors are not in our budget right now I decided to paint this rug I bought from Ikea a while back to give the room more character. 

Here is the newly painted rug

 My inspiration for this rug was from

Urban Outfitters

, who by the way has some fabulous designs for a low price.

 I love the triangle look bought I also wanted stripes! So I mixed it up.

I wanted a black and white simple geometrical design. 

What do you think of my orange chair? At the other end is a gray wing-back that I added antique brass nail heads to.

I just love my farmhouse style table that I recently received before Christmas.

This is what it looks like with the side chairs, you can see the wing-back chair better in this photo. 

Unfortunately the chairs I no longer want in here...I worked very hard on them back in 09 but they are not my style anymore. I could repaint them and add new fabric to the seats or I have two wood benches downstairs that I could paint.

 What do you think about having benches instead of chairs?

 I still have more redecorating to do...I was also thinking of adding fabric roman shades to help make the windows left awkward then they are. I did take the blue fabric of the white curtains to make them all white again.

 I want to make the dining room a place to use all the time and have it like a library also.

Check back tomorrow for the tutorial on how I painted this large rug!
