diy painted rug preview / almost there!


Almost there! Painting the rug this weekend took longer than expected - but so far it is turning out exactly how I imagined!

Only 4 more medallions left to paint - we painted the outer and middle rows first, then waited for the paint to dry because the stencil would overlap when painting the other rows.

We got two of those done and then ran out of paint - the rug absorbs so much paint! 

I'll share our process when I post finished pictures!

I am off to buy more paint!

  5. That looks amazing!! Does the paint bleed at all on the rug? Those edges look so crisp!

    1. There was a small amount of feathering on some of the edges, but not noticeable unless up close!
