I used acrylic craft paint, textile medium and stencils to paint this half moon area rug on my carpet.
I really like how the colors and the stencils worked so well together!
Here's a link....
I'm kind of a color junkie so this is right up my alley. Exhibit One, here's
the coffee table I repainted with chalk paint a couple summers ago...
I knew I'd like it as soon as I started using this stencil to put the
turquoise curlicues on the brown and red background.
My original plan was a 2" wide turquoise border around the whole arch. Then, as I was painting it I had an "oops" moment when the bright blue paint escaped the painters tape.
So, this is how I dealt with it...by using the same curlicue
stencil to add a sort of doily edge to the turquoise border.
No, it isn't perfectly even but I keep telling myself it has a certain bohemian charm, yes?
And yet I feel like maybe it is a giant floor doily now.
Or not. Hmmmm.
I'm going to think about it for a few days before making any further changes.
I'm kind of starting to like it.
And yes, I'm staring at it way too much.
Stay tuned, I'll do a final post when I've decided this project is DONE.
