Although rugs seem intrinsic in a children's room, there's always hesitation in putting one down. You know they'll get snacks and drool ground into them, so spending top dollar on one is usually out of the picture. Other options might not be exactly what you want, so why not make one instead?

Over at High-Heeled Foot In The Door (which is quite the mouthful!), there's been a little DIY going down when it comes to rug making.

Although we've seen painted rugs in the past, the hours spent with a paint brush weren't appealing and this homeowner was looking for something a little faster and slightly more polished.

Instead, a few yards of fabric were purchased along with a painter's tarp, a non-slip rug pad and some spray glue. The pieces were adhered to each other and finally the ends were sealed on a sewing machine. When all was said and done a layer of Scotch Guard was applied to give things a hand up when it comes to keeping them clean.

When all was said and done this 9'x6' rug ran this crafter $55 for supplies and at that cost, who cares how many Cheerios are ground into it? It's always liberating to find out high style is just around the corner if you can spare a few minutes for a quick project! Check out all the details over at High-Heeled Foot In The Door.
