I saw some tutorials on pinterest on painting Ikea rugs with patterns and I decided to try one out! I picked up a rug from Ikea and decided to do a Moroccan pattern.
The rug I picked was the Morum rug in dark gray. I wanted a flat woven rug so that my cat wouldn’t tear it up and I chose gray because I have a gray and white theme going in my room. Once I had the rug, I got started right away. I found a great stencil for the Moroccan pattern so I cut it out and got painting!
I used an acrylic paint and it worked great on the rug. As you can see, I used one piece of paper for the pattern, which included the cutout and a separate piece that I had to place in the middle each time. I found this method to work pretty well, but it takes patience,especially if you have a large rug.
