DIY// FLOURO STRIPED RUG

Believe it or not, I’m not the biggest DIY person around… but lately I’ve been wanting things for my apartment that are much too pricey, but happen to be very DIY-able.

I died over this rug when I saw it a few weeks ago! As you know, I’m a neon fanatic, so obviously I had to find a way to make it happen (it’s originally over $400). Sure enough, I found a cheap and easy way to make this rug possible…!

I used a Crate and Barrel striped runner, and simply painted both ending white stripes with neon acrylic (durable and wash proof) with a normal large brush. I used flouro pink and flouro red for the stripes. No need to use water with these, especially since you want a nice solid coating.

Wouldn’t this be rad for pillows too? Definitely makes a huge impact.

Not my usual illustration, but it certainly adds to my creative environment…!!! I’d love to see photos if you guys make it too.

    That looks AMAZING! You did such a wonderful job! You should try a chevron pattern too (if you want). I would definitely buy one or two of those pillows from you.
