Feature Friday - stenciled rug

A couple of months ago Jen and Shelley stenciled some rugs from Ikea.  They were really cute and when the rug in my kitchen recently died, I thought I'd give it a try myself.

I used a houndstooth stencil (from Cutting Edge Stencils) and a can of spray paint.  I thought that if I only painted it white (and left the neutral color) that it would match.....

....my family room curtains, making a nice transition from the family room to the kitchen.

It took about 15 minutes.  Sweet.  I love a quick project.  Spray paint dries so fast that I was able to go from one area to the next with no wait time.  I might spray the tan part light blue when I paint the kitchen the color I want to (but that means waiting until we repaint the cabinets someday.)  So, it's great for now.

Thanks Jen and Shelley for a great idea.  You guys can go check out their rugs HERE.

Thanks for dropping in.
