Thrifty, Practical & Chic: Veronica's Painted Persian Rug

Kilims, dhurries, and Persian rugs abound in home decor these days, and in particular, they've invaded the kitchen. Veronica, from the blog My Hands Made It, loved this look but didn't love the price tag or the anxiety that accompanies having a nice rug in a messy kitchen. So she took matters into her own hands. With an old seagrass rug, paint, and some patience, Veronica created her own version of a Persian rug. The look is chic, and the results are arguably more practical for the space. And what's more, given that slightly worn Persian rugs are some of the most desirable, there's a chance that the painted version will look even more authentic if the paint wears over time.
