We have always wanted to paint our own canvas rugs. This is one of those projects that pops up in DIY shows and magazine articles, and what better room to give this a try than a kid's room? After pricing area rugs for a kids room, we realized that we could be spending a lot of money to put something on the floor, and this might be a more economical solution, not to mention a more fun one. And since we are big fans of DIY projects, we might just give this one a try. Of course when we looked for instructions, we turned to Martha first, but in the process, we found a few other sites with good advice and instructions.
- DIYNetwork instructions for kids: hey - its their room, let them design it!
- J'adore your rug!: Instructions for a french country look.
- Simplified instructions: We aren't all as meticulous as Martha.
