Milwaukee’s winter can’t last forever, right? Let your thoughts turn to spring. After so much cold and gray, it’s time to change things up around the house. There are hundreds of ways to welcome spring into your home. Some are as easy as picking up a bouquet of flowers and some are as involved as repainting the entire house. Why not start somewhere in the middle?
A little color goes a long way in any room. Pop some color into your room with “this quick do-it-yourself project.” Amaze your friends and family by following the tutorial. (Don’t tell them about the tutorial if you want to up the Wow! factor.)
You need no special skills or equipment to stencil an area rug in the pattern and color of your choice. And, even better, you don’t need a big budget. Your room will have a whole new feel in less than a weekend’s time.
For this project, you’ll need a plain area rug. If you are looking for plain rugs in Milwaukee, see the Persian Rug Gallery http://bit.ly/1cXkiDS for great ideas. While you’re out, pick up contact paper, fabric paint, and foam paintbrushes. – See more at: http://home-owner-buff.com/awesome-diy-stencil-rug-makeover/#sthash.L5NWPEvk.dpuf
