So, I picked up a couple of these burlappy rugs at IKEA last month with plans to play around with them using paint. The one I ended up using for my Christmas mat had already gotten some wear and tear from being out front, but I wanted to give it a shot anyway.
I picked up some stencils for about $3 from Amazon (yay for Amazon Prime - I'm obsessed!) and a sample jar of paint from The Home Depot (Red Licorice by Behr).
The snowflakes look more like stars, but that's cool, too. I was going to put them all over, but I kinda like the minimal trim. The best projects end up changing halfway through, amiright??
It now sits on our front porch under our to-be-decorated-real-live wreath. And right next to our what-am-I-going-to-do-with-this-chair chair. Both, I think you'll agree are yawn-a-riffic. More to come!
