PAINT A RUG PARTY!

I've joined a PAINT A RUG PARTY spearheaded by none other than Linda from My Crafty Home Life!  (She is also the creator of the One Room Challenge.)

For this party, we are given three weeks to paint a rug.  It's that simple(I hope).
Here's our schedule...

Week one - Thursday, September 20th, the PLAN
Week two - Thursday, September 27th, the PROGRESS
Week three - Thursday, October 4th, the REVEAL

 My plan is to paint a rug for my office. (Sorry, you're probably tired of hearing me talk about it.)

Here is my inspiration photo...

 I'm not crazy enough to even try and recreate this rug but I am loving the orange rug with the pink bergere.
So orange rug it is!
Since I've never done this before, my goal is to use less money as possible and use materials I already have just in case this project goes south.

Here are some orange rugs I'm liking...







I'm also digging the orange and pink rugs...




{All are Madeline Weinrib rugs except for the 1st one}

Come back next Thursday to see the progress!
Also, make sure to check out the other 11 bloggers participating in this paint a rug party...

oh i love every one of those MW rugs - they KILL ME. C - what about going to find a nasty old persian at the thrift store and overdying it?!?! I have the best place to go for ANY color to use on a rug - you could make that one in the pic! Either way - you'll be GREAT, can't wait to see!

You have an impressive challenge with the rugs you have shown. That office is going to be stunning. I can't decide, so I will just wait and see. Tough choices.
