30 great DIY rug tutorials

I must have checked out over 50 different painted rug projects done by other bloggers before deciding what to with my own 2 white IKEA Erslev rugs.
For the nursery I went with a bright yellow and white stripey pattern and I am really pleased with the result.

For the living room I wanted a more ethnic look and went with a dark brown colour for the pattern. I am equally pleased with how this one turned out. The best thing is you get two tries since you can just turn it over and go again on the other side if it doesn't turn out the way you hoped it would. 

I am yet to post a full tutorial for how I did this rug... but it's coming.

Here is a list of 30 best painted rug projects I came across while looking for inspiration for my own rugs. I have posted some of these links before but thought that they were worth re-posting.
