Speaking Of Hand-Painted Chevron Rugs…

I’ve come across several hand-painted chevron rug designs lately. I love how such a simple, bold design can completely transform the look of a rug.

First up, Jenna at SAS Interiors turned this plain sisal rug…

…into this with the help of painters tape and paint…

What a difference!!

MY LATEST VIDEOS

Then there’s this one from Little Miss Miggy Stayed Home

And then this one from Hayley Anderson Photography

Fantastic, right? Those last two both used inexpensive flatwoven rugs from Ikea.

And then one more, from Fabulous Design File

I DO love a chevron pattern just about anywhere…on a wall, a piece of furniture, a rug. But I think for my little kitchen, it might look too busy, especially with all of the colors I want to use.

So, for me, stripes it is.

    Thanks for showing Jenna's painted rug. I think that all of us have a slightly worn rug made of carpet that we might be tired of. Don't spend money to replace it. Just turn it upside down and paint it!

    Definitely seems to need a big space to fit in, you're right!

    Love the chevron rugs, I too love it about anywhere though. I also love a good dose of stripes, can't wait to see your's when it is finished.

    I so wish I could pull this off since I can't seem to find a semi affordable chevron rug anywhere!! I think I would probably just make a mess of it 🙁

    I love the chevron, but I agree that the stripes will work better in your space. Can't wait to see the finished product!

    What material did you decide to use? My friend who does floor cloths uses canvas, and I love them, but they tend to get 'crackly and curled'. Hope you've found another way to do it….

    Carol-Anne, I actually decided to use a remnant piece of vinyl flooring that I bought at Home Depot.

    Your right with the stripes in my opinion. I usually find my first instincts best. LOVE the idea all the same!

    Thanks Kristi for sharing my rug! I created that rug almost 2 years ago and it’s amazing to see how much my home has changed since then. It’s still a great project though 😉
