I'm not loving it, yet...but keeping an open mind.
I think it will get better, how much better is the million dollar question.
If it doesn't I have a Plan B and C, totally serious, but we won't go there yet.
A flat weave natural fiber rug is not going to take on the characteristics of a
plush, hand tufted, 100% wool rug by adding paint....duh! It just looked a little...flat!
So we're going to pretend you never saw that original inspiration photo,
and go with these...
Yep, just adjust and change direction a tad by adding a lot more
work pattern to it.
I chose plum, chartreuse and black, the colors I'm planning to
incorporate for my fall/winter accessories.
After I cut out the stencils I realized you couldn't see them well...
...spray paint to the rescue...
I used Stencil Adhesive Spray found at Hobby Lobby, and a stencil brush to apply the paint.
And, here's where I'm at today, but I have a lot more pattern and detailing to complete...
before the finale next Thursday...yikes!
I'm off to see how the rest of these ladies did this week...stop by and check out
their progress, I know we're in for a treat!
