Before & After: A DIY Painted Starburst Rug

Before & After: A DIY Painted Starburst Rug

What do you do with a giant, solid color rug? Give it some personality with paint, of course!

I know what you're thinking... "Paint? On a rug?? That's crazy talk!" But, it's a great way to add some interest to an otherwise plain and boring rug -- without breaking the bank (or going out and buying a new one)!

Kara Paslay found this humongous pink rug at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore for a mere $15. Wanting something with a bit more oomph, she decided to add this bold, colorful starburst pattern! Check out how she did it over on her blog Kara Paslay Designs.

@brittni Isn't it cool?? One of my faves, too!

@Ferdous This one is all about taping off the starburst pattern, so it should be pretty easy for painters and non-painters alike!

@Tali Agreed!

That is beautiful!

Perfect solution to an old doll rug.

Amazing! I have a old red rug and I am going to try this soon (although I suck at painting)

Very cool! I think this is one of my favorite painted rug projects so far.
