If you are shy to try DIY projects, this would be a great one to start with. It's pretty simple and very impressive. Not too many of us can say that we actually designed our own rug let alone made it ourselves.
As most of you know, one of the first elements I choose when designing a space is the area rug. It's not always easy to find the perfect one. Trying to get the right size, style, color and material in an affordable price range can be a little tricky.
The other day, I was introduced to a company, Vecco, who has a simple, but genius, solution. They provide kits that allow you to design and make your own area rug. You pick the size, style and colors to create your own masterpiece. They send you a kit that includes the rug, re-usable stencils, spray paint and sealant.
Check out the Vecco website to see the cool selection of patterns and colors. Their designs are simple, graphic and striking. One of these rugs would be a great addition to any space. Not to mention, you'd get to tell your friends that you made it yourself.
