PAINT A RUG PARTY - THE PROGRESS

I love all the Madeline Weinrib rugs I showed you last week but I ended up using this pattern...

The Sherwin Williams Easychange wallpaper from our first bathroom redesign?
(I saved some of it when I took it down)


I cut a portion of the wallpaper

and started tracing the pattern with a sharpie pen...

The area rug is a plain gray rug I got from Big Lots for $20.


Then I painted some of the pattern orange using all purpose acrylic paint from Michael's...




I'm now in the process of painting over the black sharpie with white latex paint...

I ran out of orange acrylic paint before I finished the first coat. I bought flat latex orange paint(Sherwin Williams - fiesta orange) instead for better coverage.  (Notice the color difference of the 3rd and 4th rows from the top.)
It obviously needs a another coat.

I'm still trying to decide if I want to add pink.  
It is very time consuming though!!!

What do you guys think?

Wow! Wow! Wow! This is incredible! Not surprising that you are pulling it off though. You are fab!

Nancy said...

Charmaine, it looks fabulous! I love it so much. It does look like a lot of work, but it will be worth it. Maybe cut out a few pink paper shapes and try it before you commit? How does the hardened acrylic feel under your bare feet?

I am so jealous! It is wonderful. Would you like to come and paint my rug for me?

Liz said...

that's amazing. btw, I see you used SW easychange wallpaper. I'm thinking of doing that to my bathroom because it's much easier than stenciling with all the cutting in a bathroom requires. can you tell me a bit more of your experience with it? I'd love to hear! Thanks!

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

Love it!! The orange and pink would look pretty fab together, but I know what you mean about time consuming.

Julia {Pawleys Island Posh} said...

Awesome! DO THE PINK! It will be so worth the extra effort when you're finished!

My Crafty Home Life said...

I have never heard of this easychange wallpaper. I guess the next party will be who wants to wallpaper? This is fantastic. I think you should add pink, but balance the time invested with the return.

Cathy Wall said...

Wow, you are rockin' it Charmaine! I think the rug is looking fantastic and see how you feel about layering in the pink once the 2nd coat of orange goes on.

Wow, girl! It's gorgeous already, I agree with Cathy, I'd wait till you're finished with that part and see what you think about the pink.

Beth Connolly said...

Fantastic but obviously very time consuming. The pink will be wonderful if you have the time.

The Pink Pagoda said...

You're quite the over-achiever, aren't you!? Jealous!!

Sam @ The Junk House said...

It looks amazing! I love the orange and white! I wish I was this far along on my rug...

Heather Moore Grahling | Vivid Hue Home said...

Lisa - A Room with A View said...

It looks gorgeous already and pink will take it to a different level. You are so very skilled, Charmaine!

Lisa @ Trapped In North Jersey said...

would the pink be in the gray part, so that it would be a totally orange and pink rug? Because I think that would look fantastic.

LiveLaughDecorate said...

You're killing it here lady. That is a LOT a work. I'm on the fence with adding the pink? Maybe just a tad too busy, not to mention massive more hours of labor! Anywho, good luck getting to the finish line/reveal day. And yes, that office chair and painted desk are looking fab as well.

Albertina || MimosaLane said...

No way!!! I love it! You are doing such an amazing job. I would actually add pink....i would do a tiny little pink (same shape as the orange just much smaller) in the middle of the brown part and I would add the white border to that little pink....I think it would look amazing!

Beth of designPOST Interiors said...

Why am I not surprised at all that your rug is already looking this good?!

nancy @ adore to adorn said...

OMG this is soooo incredible!! What an amazing project!!! It looks just perfect!!
