I have shopped around for an area rug to put in the sunvroom for a long.....long....time. I came upon a tutorial on how to make a custom fabric rug and thought to myself .....this is just what I need for the sun room!
So come on in and see what you think of my new custom fabric rug.
It matches the fabric on the chair, ottoman, and two of the pillows on the sofa.
I bought all this RL bedroom set at a yard sale a few week ago ($30 for all of it).
I only used three king size sheets and 3 pillow cases for this project, so I still have lots of fabric left!
At the end of my post, I will give you a link to the tutorial that I used for my custom fabric rug.
I used 1 and a half king size flat sheets to make a slip cover for the side chair .
I didn't want to cover up much of my new rug, so I used an airy Duncan Phyfe three tired harp table as my coffee table.
Then I created a simple vignette on my coffee table.
I didn't make any changes to the rest of the sun room, but since I have lots of left over fabric.......
Maybe cover another pillow for the chair to the left of the sofa......
Replace the fabric on my bird condo.......
Recover the cushions on these two chairs.....
and these two rockers......
Maybe cover the rocker cushions with the coordinating print that has larger flowers.
I might even add some touches of fabric to the windows, nothing that would obstruct the view to the back yard of course
Now for the link to the tutorial that I promised.....http://allparenting.com/my-home/articles/967055/diy-fabric-rug-tutorial
If I don't have any issues with this rug, I may try to redo some of the older rugs that I have stored in the studio!
