Ikea Rug Makeover

Monday, January 9, 2012

 During my first shopping experience this past weekend at,

I found this great round outdoor rug, below,
for only $19.99.

The perfect basis for a quick and simple Monogram Project.

Step One:  Gathered supplies.
~Bowls to use as border templates and a "B" Cake Topper for the Monogram template.

Step Two:  Traced the Bowls and the Letter "B" on the rug with a permanent black marker.

Step Three:  Filled in the lines with Black Indoor/Outdoor Paint.

 And once the Painted Monogram was completely dry...

Placed it by our Salon Door to enjoy!

More on my IKEA trip coming soon! "smiles"

  3. What a clever idea! I bought a monogrammed rug from Home Depot last year and paid a lot more! Love what you did with the Ikea rug. Very clever. I'm your newest follower and I hope you can pop over to Cottage and Creek and follow back.

  5. Love how you personalized it! You're so creative that way. I love Ikea for storage and especially for sewing room storage! I can hardly wait to see what other things you found and how you used them.

  6. Great idea! That really turned out so nice.

  7. Beautiful! You got such nice clean lines. Those textured surfaces are tricky to paint!
