Throw away a rug that gets a stain on it? I think not!  Nope, just get out the paint and get to work.  Talk about turning an obstacle into an opportunity.

RustyDiva writes: Thank you so much! I'm pulling my rug out this week-end and seeing what I can do. It already has a pattern on it but maybe I can come up with something to coordinate or just paint the pattern a different color......sorry, I'm brainstorming outloud. Love all your stuff Susan ~ thanks again.

The white circles on the green rug is that "slick" fabric paint (just because that is what I already had lying around)and it worked out well too. Use a cheap brush cause the rug will eat it up :) Hope that helps ~ Susan Posted: 1:01 pm on January 4th
