Chris and I had a few old rugs laying around in the basement collecting dust. I wanted to put them to good use so I decided to paint the rug and use a stencil. I flipped the rug over to used bottom part of the rug. You need the rug to be hard and flat. Make sure to sand the rug it will give it a softer feel. After I painted two coats of paint we already had in the basement I placed a stencil and lightly rolled white paint. I splurged and bought a nice stencil since the rest of the project was free! So for about 40 bucks I re created and old rug into one that we could use in our living room!
