Favorite Items

I love the rug, mostly because it was a project I took on with my best friend. We saved almost $200 copying one I found online. I also love the ikea chair with ikat pillow and hand knitted blanket made by my mother in law.


Do as many shapes as you want, but try to stick to the same exact shades of color.

Love the colors. I think the turquoise and the orange were a bold color choice, but they look wonderful together.

Hi Amanda, I actually got my inspiration from another nursery here, When I began shopping for the rug, I was having a hard time finding one that was the right color and size for less than $200. So, with the help of a good friend, I decided to give it a DIY try. I bought this rug from Walmart for $40 in Ivory,, three cans of RustOleum spray paint in Fire Orange, a few rolls of duct tape to layout the stripes and a can of Scotchguard to treat the rug when it was dry. My friend did all the spraying since I was pregnant, but it really was pretty easy, just a bit time consuming laying out the stripes. The paint finish was a little crispy at first, but now that we've walked on it for a a bit it feels just like a regular rug. Hope this helps!

I'm using these colors for my nursery! They're a great combination. Is the rug a DIY project? Where did you get your inspiration and how did you make it, if you don't mind me asking? I love it!
