Painted Rug

Howdy ladies. Welcome to the mansion this fine Tuesday. I want to share the boys' rug with you all today. It started out as a cheapo green rug from Wally World. However, when we put it between the boys' beds, it looked less than fabulous. So...what to do? Aha! Paint it!
First I marked off a large rectangle to create a border. Then I grabbed some brown, black, and green paints (the craft paints in the craft section of Wal-Mart) and started painting blobs on the border area of the rug. More blobs... After the border looked nice and camo-like, I used some stencils to paint the boys' names in yellow. Here is the finished rug. And, here are some pics of the rug in their room....
Thanks for stopping by.
