To turn one into a rug, all you need is a few coats of water based polyurethane and a rubber rug backer. A bit of double sided tape won't hurt either to help hold things together. Although this will feel soft under your feet, it won't be extra cushy like a plush rug will. It's perfect for areas that might see higher traffic or dirt. I'm eyeing the project right now for my basement, which has concrete floors in dire need of some sprucing up!
