Last weekend when we went home for Thanksgiving we picked up a table for the dining room. Meaning, maybe its time to start pulling that room together........I had been looking online for an inexpensive rug for the room without much luck. I wanted something geometric and fairly neutral; but didn't want to spend a fortune on it since my husband is prone to spilling.
I picked up this $40 rug at Ikea, and got to work laying out a link pattern with 1" blue painters tape.
I'm not going to lie, taping everything off was not a quick process.
After everything was taped off I started painting. I'm not going to say this was a huge success, the paint is pretty uneven in places. I would recommend doing a less contrasting color (if I were doing it again). But o'well. I used Benjamin Moore flat paint, in Weimaraner.
I still need to touch up the edges, so I haven't pulled off the tape there yet.
Is it perfect? Nope.
But for ~$60, its good enough for me, for now :)
1 Ikea Erslev Cotton Rug (5'11" x 8'2") ~$40
2 Rolls 1" Painters Tape (used just a little over one roll) ~$4
1 Quart Paint (only used about half) ~$15
