New area rugs can be very expense. Save some money and make a rug. We turned a plain, inexpensive carpet remnant into this gorgeous area rug with upholstery paint and a few rolls of painter's tape.
4 to 5 large drop clothes
carpet remnant — low pile, not Berber
Simply Spray Upholstery Paint (we used green, orange and blue)
5 to 6 rolls of painter's tape
Lay out the carpet remnant on the drop cloths. Make sure it is even and square at the edges.
Start your striped pattern on one side by measuring out the width of your stripes. The painter's tape will cover some of the carpet, so remember to include it in your measuring.
