I am the mom of three children who keep me really busy. Whenever I have ‘down’ time, which is usually pretty rare, I love to create things & feel a sense of accomplishment.
I started with my Ikea rug, which we’ve had for over 4 years now. Funny side story about the rug, we had some work done at our house when we first moved in, and the guy accidentally spilled paint on this rug. We of course had it replaced with something different, but decided to still keep the rug that had paint on it, and move it upstairs where it could be hidden under the desk. And now 4 years later, I purposely spilled paint on the rug! Pretty funny, right?!
Anyway, here’s how I got started.
I then placed bricks around the edges, so it would lay flat.
Once that was done, I was ready to paint. (Valspar Courtyard
