My friend Ashley and I took on a new project this past weekend. We had seen these cute rugs on facebook and thought we could do it too! We just loved the colors and designs. We wanted to spice up our kitchens with some color. The rugs are made out of lenoleum which we bought at Lowe's. We used the rough side and put a primer on it. Then it was time to pick our design and start painting! We were both a little apprehensive about this project because we are not artsy. However, I think we were both proud of ourselves with the finished product. It took us a total of 6 hours to make these fabulous rugs, I know that seems like a long time but it was our first time. With practice we should be able to do it faster. Here is the early stages of the rug
We used the same color scheme and, green, brown, and gold

This was the "rough draft" we had to add more paint.....several times

Almost finished, just need the initial

Ta Da!! Here is the final product!! It is definitely not perfect but for the first one I think it turned out pretty good! Can't wait to paint some more!!
